posted Jan 20, 2012, 10:59 AM by   [ updated Jan 20, 2012, 10:59 AM ]
First Graders wrote short dialogues with a partner.  In this lesson, they will work in groups of three: two actors and one cameraperson.

Instructions for Actors:
  • Practice your lines before recording!
  • Look for the red light on the camera to know that it's started recording
  • Speak loudly and clearly
  • Look at the camera, not at your paper.
Instructions for Camerapeople:
  • Look at the screen on the camera and make sure you can see the actors from hip to above their heads
  • Start recording a few seconds early
  • Point at the actors to let them know you're recording
  • Hold the camera as still and steady as possible
  • Wait a few seconds after the actors finish before you stop recording
Instructions for Everyone:
  • Press play to watch your video over and make sure you can hear and see everything
