This school year term, I took a sabbatical leave to complete working on my Masters; therefore, I found it somewhat difficult to post activities that I was doing in my classroom. However, in my English II class last year, we did some fascinating work that I consider sharing on my blog.
In Nonfiction Unit, my students were assigned to compose an autobiography using Microsoft PowerPoint. The Autobiographical Presentation was entitled, “All About Me. I have currently encountered new knowledge and skills in technology from the dynamic Professor Dr. K.K. Lopez, and without hesitation, I immediately thought how I could alter the assignment by having them to convert the PowerPoint slides into jpegs and upload them into storyboard. The students then would add narration and music and create a movie video. . I took the autobiographical PowerPoint of Tiffany Evans and transformed it into a movie video. I’m absolutely sure that my students will love doing this assignment when I return next year to English.
