Students create a video that shares with their classmates what they learned about a problem or issue they investigated. In the style of a public service announcement, or PSA, this video should contain important information that helps bring awareness of the topic to a wider audience.
In this activity, students will study and investigate a problem or an issue in their lives, at their school, or in their community. Once students have thoroughly researched their issue, they will create a public service announcement (PSA) to bring awareness to the issue they have chosen to investigate.
Tips & tricks
