Watch, Think, Create: Workshops for Grades 3-6
Hosted by ReelAbilities Film Festival Toronto
WATCH, THINK, CREATE is a self-paced workshop series for grades 3-6 where students will learn about accessibility in schools and public spaces.
How does it work? On April 6, we will send you 4 lesson plans. Lesson plans will include exclusive ReelAbilities film links, slideshows, and tutorials. Lessons are designed for little to no prep by teachers. You can complete lessons at the pace that works for you, as long as all 4 lessons are complete by May 7th.
What materials do I need? Students will require a device to take photographs. Any tablet, phone, Chromebook, or digital camera can work. Devices can be shared by students. Classes will require a way to screen films and show slideshows to students.
Can I run this program with my online class? Yes! You may need to make some slight modifications, but this workshop is designed with virtual and in person learning in mind.
Lesson Overview: Lesson One: Students will learn about the many barriers to accessibility in our schools, public spaces, and homes.
Lesson Two: Students will learn that for every accessibility barrier, there is a solution. We must all be part of solving accessibility problems. (Exclusive interview from Luke Anderson from StopGap)
Lesson Three: Students will learn about the Access Photo Challenge, documenting accessibility through photographs. And they will learn how to take a beautiful photograph.
Lesson Four: Students will critique each other's photographs and submit their photos to our Virtual Gallery.
All photo submissions will be displayed in our Virtual Gallery and will be entered to our "Access Photo Challenge". Winners will receive an Indigo Gift Card and $50 to donate to a charity of their choosing.
