As a whole class, create a collaborative presentation.

Goal: create a seamless story presentation where each individual slide is created by
one person (without knowing what everyone else creates). The story is told “on the fly” as slides pop up during the presentation.

Process:

  • Each person creates one slide with one image, properly cited
  • As they are created, each person knows that they will speak about one slide, but they won’t know which one
  • Once all slides are created number off so that each person is assigned a slide
  • Give everyone a minute to look at their slide,
    but they might not know what the person before they will say, so don’t give too much time
  • Everyone gets up and stands in a line in their number order
  • Each person speaks about their one slide, creating one seamless story from all of the diverse slides in the presentation
