Project Overview

After reading the novel The Westing Game students were given the task to create a movie trailer. The students had multiple tasks to complete during the project process.
  1. Create a storyboard, this can be done individually on the printed template, in powerpoint  (when printing it tell students to print handouts) or collaboratively in docs with one of the public storyboard templates.
  2. Once the group has assigned the individual roles then they must chose scenes from each members storyboard and collaboratively write a script for their video. (must use dialog from the book).
  3. Bring in wardrobe, props and film video.
  4. Each group member has to take a turn in the video editing process.
