First Person: Help Students Tell Their Stories with Multimedia Personal Narratives (Grades 6-12)
Start the year inviting students to bring their whole selves into your classroom with this multimedia personal narrative project. KQED’s First Person Youth Media Challenge invites students to create a short film, audio essay or visual self-portrait or photo essay to share their story or speak their truth. Media making strengthens writing, speaking, listening and language fluency, in addition to boosting confidence and centering student voice. In this interactive workshop, we’ll explore the creative possibilities of the updated First Person project, which expands on KQED’s Perspectives challenge. We’ll also jump into media creation and project planning so you’re ready to bring the project to students this school year. Come away with ideas, inspiration and ready-to-use modifiable curriculum resources in English and Spanish. Finally, learn about how your middle and high school students can publish their work on KQED’s Youth Media Showcase and share their voice beyond the classroom.
