Think carefully about the story your photographs tell.
- If the only connection between your photographs is you, you may need to make a connection e.g. comment on your changing appearance or perhaps make a series like "the first time I..." (had an ice cream, went to the sea, rode a horse etc.)
- Remember the story will be recorded to be heard by your audience - not read by them.
- Make sure you create a dramatic first sentence and a satisfying final sentence.
- Word process your story (Word or Google Document).
- Your story should be not less than 100 words and not more than 200 words (250 at the outside)
- Read your story aloud several times. Expect to edit it to make it sound better
When you are happy with it, copy and paste it into cueprompter
and practise it. You could try making a rough
recording using Audacity and listen hard to the recording for pace, rhythm, expression and key phrases.
Homework: For the next session you will need to bring in your photographs.
- If they are on your computer, upload them to a filing page on your Google Site or VLE or bring them in on a USB drive. If you need to bring a camera or phone remember to bring leads too.
- If they are prints: either scan them and save them to your Google site/VLE/USB drive
or bring them to your lesson to scan them
Remember prints are very precious - so bring and store them carefully. If in doubt ask for somewhere safe to keep them.
