I recently attended the CUE 2015 conference with some Manhattan Beach Unified colleagues. One of our colleagues, Paula Noda, learned some cool writing strategies in her first presentation. In this writing activity, students watch high-quality animated videos and then write dialog and narration in small groups to accompany the video. Students record their dialog on the video to publish. Lisa Nowakowsi's presentation details her process and shows videos and student examples to support several lessons. Her examples are with 5th grade students, but this process could be used for any grade to record dialog for any video or book. Find out more about Lisa on her website.
Rob Smith has an amazing website full of videos organized by theme. Check them out; he even has lesson ideas for many of the videos! Here is one titled Oktapodi also available on YouTube.
