Lesson 5 – How To Film

 

Using Adobe Spark to make a simple book review

 

“I have used film and video in class many times before but the reason this project worked so well is that they were the storytellers, the experts. They knew that in order to do justice to the stories, they must feel real, not like the recount of a child. This became the driving force behind their truly incredible writing. ”
