Public Service Announcements
My students created public service announcements to teach others about genetic disorders. They used WeVideo, Powtoon, or Flip Cameras to showcase their PSA. Their research was guided and they were taught how to write a script for their presentation. A rubric was also provided to help them cover the requirements. Here is a link to a few of the projects:
The technology and format of this assignment meets the modification stage of the SAM-R model. Students are more motivated when they are creating a product and it increases their level of understanding of genetic disorders. They also learn from the work of their classmates when they view and critique what each has done. This exposed them to many disorders that they had never heard of.
