This is going to entail 5 full lessons based on a project called
"The Door Scene."

This hands on and curriculum rich project is designed to allow
student learning to

emerge from creative collaboration and critical review of
students’ work, rather

than from more traditional forms of classroom instruction.
The process is a

progressive cycle—essentially a series of learning
discussions—in which students

work collaboratively to produce a film for critical review
and analysis by their

peers, teachers.

In these rich and intense lessons students will work in small
groups of 4 through a 5 day period, and come out of it with a
greater appreciation of visual story telling as an art form.

These 5 lessons are recommended for second semester students, as
the lessons are fast paced and full of multi-tasking roles. Also,
you may only want to do this every other year so your students do
not know the outcome of the 5 lessons.

**Before staring the following 5 lessons you need to make sure
you have enough cameras and tripods for each group. You also have
to make sure each group has an "assigned door" somewhere on your
campus. This door should be located in an empty space as their
filming will be distracting to others in the room if present.
Students will have to be able to film on both sides of the door, so
some pre-communication and planning on your end will be crucial.
Students will have to act in a quick manner in order to get each
days lesson finished. They may also have to complete some of the
questions at home each night.
