2010 top 10: #3 The Invisible Man Comic Video, and #4 Our Visit With Judy Barrett Video
In this adaptation of a classic novel into a comic book, then into a video, Mr. Tandarich’s 5th grade students demonstrated an understanding of how to use multiple media to represent details in story and bring their vision to life. It’s clear from watching the documentary that they understood how to create tone through a combination of editing, images and expressive reading. The result: a 21st century version of a classic!
Ms. Barrett has written over 20 books including, Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs! She read to our students, showed pictures and answered questions. Mrs. Lane and her production team of 5th graders documented the visit with a Flip Camera, and added reflective narration and a few bells and whistles in iMovie. The result is an authentic student archival of a meaningful moment in their PS 124 experience.
