Our History Alive competition is open! You have until February 15th to put together a video. I’m really excited about this. I think it could be a lot of fun.
There are two types of videos you could make. You could do a documentary-like video. For instance, you could use Power Point to make a video presentation. You could also put on a play and video it. It can just be in your living room. It doesn’t have to be fancy. We just need to be able to see and hear you! To do that alone, you could do a monologue. You could give a speech as a character or be several characters!
This is a history competition. You need to have research and bibliography. The more you can use primary sources, the better. Primary sources are straight from the source: photographs, maps, autobiographies, interviews, letters, speeches, etc. Try to show a point, an impact, of whatever history topic you are presenting.
We’ll be giving out cash prizes just like for our other competitions.
I hope this excites some of you! Can’t wait to see what people come up with. I may even be able to use winning videos in the curriculum!
