Learning Objectives

Students will recognize and understand the importance of VOICE in their writing as well as creatively show voice in contrasting roles.

Project Description

Read the book I AM THE DOG I AM THE CAT to students. Talk about the different personalities shown through the two opposing characters. Assign students to partner up and come up with opposing characters or items (they don’t have to be living), and have them create a script showing voice as well as their opposing views. Finally, have students create a PicCollage to use as a background in the Green Screen app and then record themselves reading their scripts while demonstrating voice.
