I decided to go ahead and do this project again, because I loved it so much two years ago, and knew--despite me not being able to go to Dauphin this year :(--these current 8th graders would love it and do great things with it.
During MAP testing week, students spent a few minutes writing their reflections about their expedition and experiences. This would then serve as their narrative for their video.
After showing a few examples from two years ago and going over the requirements (see below), students set out to create some awesome reflection videos about their Dauphin Expedition.
I was so impressed with how these videos turned out! All of the students created some amazing video reflections of their experiences and did so eloquently and so heart-felt. Enjoy these videos below! And click here for the full playlist of their videos.
