(1 -2 weeks) – These are three page curricular units that are designed to be completed in one to two weeks, assuming a focus of two or three periods a week. The resulting media work – video or audio – is never longer than 60 seconds and often just involves one or two shots.
The Meridian Minutes challenge the students – working in pairs or in teams – to ‘play’ with assigned content in an unusual way, resulting in a short presentation piece that is often designed to teach the other students.
Each Meridian Minute:
Introduces the creative curricular prompt;
Identifies the targeted skill sets;
Lays out a step-by-step process for classroom execution; and
Concludes on the educational value.
