CBK PBL Manual Cinema Documentary Features Student Voice

As part of his Avalon Foundation Design Fellowship, CBK project based learning teacher Isaac Stanford created a student voice-focused video highlighting the three core practices  (collaboration, student choice and community partnerships) of the class’ Manual Cinema project. In this project, students connected their previous assignment, the story map project, to creating cinematic shadow puppets. The goal was to create entertaining and informative movies to introduce their Cheltenham Elementary School “buddies” to the places they researched in the story map project.  Both videos will be featured on  High Tech High’s UnBoxed website as part of its effort to showcase project based learning in public school classrooms.
