Vine Videos are six-second videos that run on a loop. Your Challenge is to create a modified Vine video with a focus on vocabulary words or literary devices (i.e. alliteration, allegory, simile, etc.): things that you and your classmates have to memorize and understand in order to write effectively and well. So essentially, you are taking on the role of the teacher here: you will teach your classmates the definitions of your chosen content, but instead of lecturing or listing, you’ll be using a cool new video technique. Each member of your team will pick six words or devices, then devote six seconds of video to getting the meaning of this word across to the viewer: your job is to teach the viewer that word– what it means and what it looks like– in six seconds in a simple, unforgettable way. Your team will then string all of these clips together into one longer video that runs for approximately one to two minutes: a video that, when watched over and over, would creatively and excitingly nail these words into the viewer’s (i.e., your students’!) heads. Additionally, your video must have some kind of theme or connective tissue that ties your words together: creating a story or connection– something that makes this more than just a random string of definitions. We recommend at the end of this Challenge that the class use these videos as a source of learning all of the words that the class has tackled. These videos can be shared with the entire school, in fact!
