Once Upon a Time

OVERVIEW

In this final assignment for the semester, you are projected forward into time. Now, a grandparent, your grandchildren are online and they are clamoring for you to tell them a story.  Think about what message you want to leave these tiny people you adore, what life lesson should they know, should you sanitize the content or address those things that are difficult and let them know they will be okay,  what do you consider most important for them to take with them? Prepare and then record that story in ca. three to five minutes. If you use a fairy tale verbatim, then focus on the storytelling aspect, emphasizing action and the message. 

Choose or create a tale to tell your imaginary grandchildren. Make it meaningful. Perform the story as if it were a theatrical reading. 

Emphasize the message you want to impart to them.

At its conclusion, briefly recap what it is they should take with them. 

Post your video to Flipgrid…
