Materials/Apps/Sites

Background for Teachers

FCS Exploration B, Strand 5: Students will exercise the social and emotional skills related to Human Services

 

Student Prior Knowledge

Students should have already had lessons in all the standards. This is meant to be a final project at the end of the unit. Students should have created a Bucklet List, but if they have not, it can be included as part of the project.

Intended Learning Outcomes

Students will create a road map of life that analyzes the influence of personal values and goals related to college/career pathways.

Instructional Procedures

Planning: 10-15 minutes

Hand out the Roadmap of Life instructions. Students can start brainstorming their ideas on the instruction sheet. They should have at least 20 life events written down. If they haven't already done a Bucket List, they can make one right now.

 

Storyboarding: 15-20 minutes

Have the students get on their devices. Provide a copy of the Digital Storyboard for students to fill out electronically. The storyboard can also be printed and used by the students on paper. They should include a picture/video and the audio script for each life event.

 

Roadmap of Life Video: 30-40 minutes

Once their storyboards have been created, the students should use those storyboards to create their videos on Adobe Spark (or another similar video software). They should have a picture and audio script for each life event.
