The teacher will then lead a class discussion comparing the student’s ideas on examples and how they could be visually demonstrate the parts of speech. The students will be given a preview of the assignment for Day 2.

Homework: Students should start thinking about materials they could use to create a stop motion video showing the meaning of each part of speech and demonstrating usage.

Day 2:
Objective(s): Students will collaborate to design a visual storyboard of their grammar video.

Students will sit with their small groups. Groups will discuss their ideas for demonstrating meaning and usage of grammar parts of speech. Students will get teacher approval for their ideas before proceeding. Each group will be given a storyboard template. The students will collaborate and design a storyboard that follows their grammar video idea. (Teacher will notify students of time requirements. Students videos should not exceed 10 minutes in length due to class period time and number of groups.)

Homework: Teacher will provide markers, color pencils, paper, and clay. Students should collect and bring to class any addition materials they would like to use in their stop motion video production.
