ANIMOTO PROJECT GUIDELINES--
You may work with one partner or on your own. If you choose to work with a partner, please list both
names in the "produced by" area. You will create a three to five minute animated slide show using music,
pictures, graphics, video clips and text. Please be sure to select classroom-appropriate music and that your
music is sufficient in length--your project will end with the end of the song! If the music is longer in duration
than your project, the music will simply fade out with the end of the slide show...
You will choose a content topic that is Standards based. The California Standards for History/Social Science
may be found in the Links section--use the drop down box to access the Reference and Research Links. I also
have two copies in our classroom. You must name the Standard, by number, and briefly explain how your project
attempts to address the Content Standard in the information/description box which is accessed in the advanced
settings when you are in "create video" or "edit video" mode.
You will teach, explain, explore your topic with high school seniors as your target audience. We will view all projects
in class and all students will participate in the evaluation of the projects using the rubric as defined in the Grading
Policy. Be sure to pick an appropriate style for your video....no hearts and flowers or holiday themes, please!
So.....get creative and have fun! I am eager to see your fabulous projects!
Projects must be completed and ready to view in class by.... APRIL 9th!!!!
