Unit 3 - How can an idea change the world?



Create Phase Instructions


In the Create Phase of the unit, students will follow the plan they created to produce their Documentary Video around the community or social issue they researched and wrote the essay on. The student should use appropriate techniques and tools to produce a product or solution of the best possible quality given access to materials and resources they available to them. Evidence of the student's participation throughout the creation of the product must be shown as part of the process journal section of the design portfolio document. Acceptable evidence could include chronological journalistic evidence such as text entries, images of the student working on the product, or video capturing details of the products creation.
