Classroom or School Videos Can Tell a Powerful Story

Not so excited about writing to describe your great work with kids? Are you more of a visual learner & communicator? Classroom or school videos can tell a powerful story as this one from Whittier Middle School in Poland Maine very nicely shows. As you’ll see if you watch the students spent 8 weeks researching history topics. So the work is in-depth — and the kids have a lot of choice about what to investigate. It’s especially interesting that the teachers combine these valuable approaches with the Common Core standards focus on argument. Even better: the Maine Dept. of Education has featured the video, so it’s getting wider attention.

Nothing to fear in putting this kind of information out there for the public to see. And if you don’t have time to make the video, I bet there are plenty of kids in the school with the skills and energy to film it for you.
