Ranting the Essay

A session at BIT15 - Bring IT,Together 2015

Friday 6th November, 2015

11:00am to 11:50am (EST)

Tired of teaching the same old 5-paragraph essay? Try Rants! I will demonstrate the use of IT in essay writing through the inspiration of Rick Mercer's Rants. I will share with educators, my resources for teaching media conventions, storyboarding, essay writing and citing sources, oral communication skills, filming and editing ideas. I will show how the use of a Learning Management System (ex. Edmodo, D2L). will aid in providing students with learning resources and descriptive feedback from both teacher and peers. Student Rants will be shown to inspire teachers to take risks with the Essay.
