What should your students be looking for in Ocean 180 Videos? What makes a winning submission? While we want the winners to be picked by our middle schools students, there are some great points to keep in mind while watching the video entries.
To help your students select their favorite videos, we've provided a rubric for your classroom to use. The rubric can be used to score each of the 10 videos and help narrow the field. While the rubric is not mandatory, you may want to use these films to open up further discussion with your class.
We encourage the use of these films in your lessons and as tools to expand on curriculum. Teachers may modify the rubric or develop their own system for judging the films as a class. To encourage classroom discussion and participation, students should view the videos in class, not at home as an individual assignment.
