this portion of class.

o Graphic Organizer: Plan out three potential Vlogs. These plans should include a Channel
Name, The Type of Vlog, A Theme/Gimmick, and the Target Audience.
o Research: Provided there is a page to write down what materials you are going to need to
create your Vlog. This is also the page where you can provide the references for the
information in your Vlog. It is required that students do research even if the topic is
something they are already familiar with.
o Storyboard: These pages are used to help you plan out what your Vlog is going to be
about. It is important that you finish the Storyboard before you start your filming process.
The quality of the drawings is not important but do make sure to plan out each section of
the video.
o Script: Create a rough script of what you are going to say in the video. You do not need
to follow the script word for word, but it should be used as a detailed guideline of what
you are going to say.
Individual Brainstorm (10 minutes): Give students the remainder of the class to begin to
brainstorm ideas. Be available to student conferencing and to answer questions. Suggest that
students begin work on the Graphic Organizer.

 Pre-Assessment: Ask students to brainstorm about what they think makes a good Vlog.
This will have all students thinking about Vlog components.
 Questions: Ask students questions periodically during the explanation if they have any
questions or concerns.
 Check for Understanding: Have students repeat back important information to you so
that can confirm that they understand.
