CHC 2D 2011: The Roaring Twenties Skit

Roaring Twenties Video

What you will do:

  • You will produce a video that is roughly 4-5 minutes long
  • Your skits will demonstrate the role of women, transportation, prohibition, sports, or culture on Canada during the 1920s

Some Guidelines

  • The video must feature a number of specific references and details related to your topic and the 1920s in general
  •  The video needs a narrative! Creating a story (characters, a conflict, or action) will help you avoid the bland inclusion of facts
  • You need to act. You don’t have to be a great actor; still, you need to use your voice and actions to communicate with the audience. Avoid the semi-circle of death at all costs. (ask me about this)
  • By the time you are done, I need to know that you have a relatively complete picture of the role your topic played in the 1920s.

Production Considerations

  • We will be using a program called Windows Movie Maker to create the videos. It is easy to use. Still, if you need technical assistance, I will help you.
  • You may include some images and video from other sources, but you might cite them. You must also maintain an appropriate balance between your own footage and external footage.
  • Each student will be assessed individually. Thus, it is imperative that the workload is shared.
