Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

Creative Writing Final Exam


Students will draft two story shorts that they will submit via a message board for peer review and critique. After reflecting upon their comments and suggestions provided by fellow classmates, they will select the story short they wish to progress forward with to the animation process. Using the web tool GoAnimate, students will animate their story bringing it to life and present to their class. Students will be graded upon discussion participation and a presentation rubric.

Learning Targets: 
Students will become comfortable with the workshop process of self and group analysis and critique.
Students will demonstrate the general skills of grammar, mechanics, and word choice while infusing their writing style and voice.
Students will use digital media to produce and publish their writing into an animated video.
