What is a documentary?

Documentaries are nonfiction movies that record or detail experiences that have taken place. We have watched these types of films in class. You will be creating your own documentary. You can choose from any of the options below. You will act out the information in your documentary (people can be factory owners, reformers, etc.) You do not have to use the websites I have listed below, but you may want to look at them for your research. All documentaries include interviews, images, and factual information.


In-Class Work/day

Day 1: You will be working in your groups that you are currently sitting in. For this day you will want to choose a topic with your group and figure out the layout of your movie.


Day 2-3: You will begin writing a script for your documentaries. This part of the project will take you the longest. Once you have your script done, you can begin filming and looking for images to put into your project.
