Assignment: Physical Health
Create a public information program about the benefits of a good diet, or any other similar positive health practice such as smoking cessation, drug avoidance, or regular exercise.
Do it as a documentary discussing the issue in depth.
Present the topic in story form, taking one person as an example.
Create a propaganda style film or advert.
Intersperse the presentation with still images and video if appropriate. You could do this as a studio presentation or lecture, and display the images on a screen behind the presenter, or else you can make the images go full-screen.
Add extra content on-screen by using text to complement what you're saying.
Add appropriate background music to create atmosphere, and ensure you have a striking title sequence.
For teachers: benefits to students
- This allows the students to think creatively about how to get that message across to others in a way that means something to them. Some may prefer to concentrate on the facts, while others will adopt a more emotional or personal approach.
- Adding multimedia content enables the student to approach the subject in a richer way than just using written text and still images.
- Finding images and music to enhance the presentation requires detailed research.
- Providing narration builds confidence in speaking without needing to do it in front of an audience or camera.
- Creating a multimedia presentation helps develop presentational skills and requires the student to consider what information is best presented using the different media: spoken, written, or visual.
