5th Week of the Sixth Six Weeks

Publishing a Flash Movie – in class Monday — major project grade
Create a Flash Intro for Class Portfolio

Create a storyboard for the introduction for the Web Mastering Portfolio. The intro should describe your work in the Web Mastering Class, and showcase your skills. There is no set length, but pace yourself so you can create the intro in the time give. May 7 -9 should be spent developing scene 1 of the introduction. This can be any type of movie you choose. The scene should contain text for letting your audience know what they are viewing, have a certain style that you have chosen, and highlight your personality. You must include a skip intro button and sound in this file. The movie will be created next week. It will lead to each of the projects that you have completed content.html will complete the Portfolio introduction. This is a web page that contains a Flash Movie that has ‘buttons’ that access the each of the semester’s projects. See list below for proper filenames. These are the ones that were assigned in class. You may need to actually look in your folder. Some of you did not use the file names that were suggested.

Lesson Plans for May 4  – 8

Final Week for the Fractured Fairy Tale Project.  All projects are due at the end of the day on Friday, May 8.  Tutorials will be held Tuesday and Friday during either lunch period.

Review the Rubric for the project

This lesson continues with a study of story structure and the six traits of writing, using both traditional and fractured fairy tales. The six traits are ideas, organization, voice, word choice, fluency, and conventions. In a collaborative writing activity, students use the Fractured Fairy Tales tool to plan their own fractured tale with several alternate plotlines and endings. Students then add images, transitions, and motion to enhance the meaning of the text.

Student Objectives

Students will

  • Become more familiar with the six traits of writing through a review of a variety of fairy tales and fractured fairy tales
  • Practice the six traits in original writing
  • Evaluate the work of their collaborative group and the work of their peers according to the six traits of writing
  • Apply their knowledge of story structure in the creation of coherent hyperlinked stories
  • Develop visual literacy skills in creating effective presentations using color, font, and images in addition to text. Final project will be created in Flash using the techniques learned at the beginning of the six weeks.

First Week of the Sixth Six Weeks

lesson plans - April 13 – 17

Requirements –  Each Fairy Tale should have the following:

  1. Creative Title
  2. Clearly defined main character
  3. Setting – where does the story take place?
  4. It should be obvious who is telling the story (point of view?)
  5. What is the problem in the story
  6. How does it end?

Each student will create a Flash Movie telling his/her story.  The story must be at LEAST 60 seconds long.  Tweens should be used to create motion.  Minimum grades will be given for static slides.  Buttons can (should) be used to advance to other scenes.

Research should be done on Flash to learn the skills necessary to create the movie.  The water glass and the phone movie directions are available for student use. 

There will be class lessons on the following:

  • Interactive Buttons to change scenes
  • Recording Sound to import into library
  • Creating object movement (as in running or talking).
