Digital Retelling: Response to Literature

Yesterday I posted a few videos for our Response to Literature genre.  We've worked for two weeks  to plan, write, edit, and film our digital retelling.  Using the FLIP has made digital storytelling a breeze.  I record between 4-20 seconds for each page of the student's response.  The filming goes by very quickly.  Editing is complete in a blink; However, when you film your entire class in 24 hours, you will have more editing than you can keep up with.  :)  I currently have 202 video clips, averaging around 18-22  for each student remaining.  Needless to say, I am posting videos over the next few days so that all parents can locate and watch through the Digital Storytelling label.




I am posting the rubric used for our retelling and a color code sheet for posting our writing in the hallway.  Hope you find it useful.

Hi Cheryl, These videos are awesome, your students did an excellent job!!

I love the rubric and was curious about the color coding sheet for writing...could you explain a bit more about it (what the numbers/colors represent)? Whenever you get the chance, I know you're busy! :)

Wow! Thank you for sharing! We work a lot on retelling as we use the DRA assessments and I have not used my Flip camera much this year! I am now beginning to think about a few ideas for next week! Thank you for sharing your rubrics!
Thanks again,
Michelle

Cheryl, can you share what program you edit in? I have a flip and I know how to record and upload videos but I love the fade in between each illustration. I have a mac and was thinking maybe you used garage band or imovie?
