What Happened to the Drama Teacher?

EESL - Sec. 2-3

In this scenario, students will reinvest information to write a narrative in order to produce a digital story.

Students will become a potential suspect in an investigation. They will personify a suspect and produce a statement about what happened to the drama teacher.

In teams of 2-3, students will brainstorm their version of the events that took place by using information given to them on a suspect card.

They will :

  • Write a text (testimony) about the event.
  •  Plan a digital story with a storyboard.
  •  Produce a digital story with a tablet.
  •  Listen to the different testimonies.
  •  Decide who is guilty, and write down arguments to support their decision.
