Among the Hidden multimedia projects

This morning, I worked in a grade 6 classroom beginning and end of unit project on Among the Hidden by Haddix.  The students did a tremendous job. We began with a quick intro on choices of concepts like book summaries versus book reviews, alternate endings, alternate scenes, top 10 list, a to z books and many other multimedia projects that allow our students to show what they know in an unconventional way as opposed to simply writing a book report. The choice for applications was Explain Everything, Imovie and Book Creator. 

Students were grouped in 2's or 3's and spent the entire period filming and refining their concept. I like to give lots of freedom to choose and then refine the concept with each group individually as they are working.
Requirements
title page with name of book
no student last names anywhere
app smash at least once

Students will need 1 class work period to finish it up and then one class to share their work on the big screen!
Stay tuned for the videos coming soon!
