Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

The presenter will briefly describe ten practical ways to use a Green Screen to enhance ELA elementary instruction. Practical examples of how the presenter implemented this strategy with second grade students will be provided. Additionally, participants will be provided with time to explore, and play around with different strategies.

Participants will explore the following ideas: (1) Green Screen backgrounds that students can be used as fiction writing prompts. (2) Green Screen background that students can be used as non-fiction writing prompts. (3) Green Screen backgrounds that students can be used with opinion writing prompts. (4) Green Screen backgrounds to capture and write about VR/AR/MR experiences. (5). Green Screen backgrounds to capture and write about STEM experiences. (6). Green Screen backgrounds used to demonstrate reading comprehension with a Real BookSnap. (7). Combing FlipGrid and Green Screen Images to have students enhance expressive and receptive language. (8). Students can create book talks with meaningful backgrounds. (9). Students can create Green Screen puppet shows to retell books. (10). Students can create their own Green Screen puppet show story.

Outline

The presenter will use a Nearpod presentation. The participants will be provided with a join code at the beginning of the presentation. Also, participants will be provided with a link to access additional resources in a shared Google folder.

The first half-hour of the presentation the presenter will guide the participants through the Nearpod. The presenter will highlight the 10 different ways that Green Screens can be used in the classroom to enhance ELA instruction for elementary students. The presenter will provide practical examples of how these strategies look in her second grade classroom. Polls, responses, and other activities will be built into the presentation to keep the participants responding and sharing different ideas throughout. The presenter will have access to all of the responses of the participants.

The second half-hour of the presentation the participants will have time to explore the different strategies that were highlighted during the presentation. The participants have the opportunity to create a Green Screen puppet show, take Green Screen pictures, etc. Further, participants will share out what they are learning in a collaborative FlipGrid.
