Great idea in incorporating

Great idea in incorporating technology into the lesson. I for one am not familiar with Photostory but in a similar type of project students make PSAs that they upload onto Youtube for inclass viewing. Thanks for sharing.

I thought this was a great

I thought this was a great lesson. I used it as an anatomy lesson when we were in between chapters. Kids did a great job of using photostory to pass along information about some very important communicable disease. Great use of technology in the classroom.

The rubric was very detailed!

The rubric was very detailed! It offered a lot of room for modification/accommodation. The student assessment form gave accountability and a way for them to practice constructive criticism. The overall lesson is very well written with objectives clearly stated and is very easy to follow or adapt to the classroom
