This is a guest post from Ruston Hurley, the founder of Next Vista for Learning and the author of Making Your School Something Special.
It can be work getting students (and ourselves, truth be told) to remember what we should do. Getting our charges to make a video explaining what to do can be helpful, but there's arguably an even better way: have them make a video about what not to do.
How to Fail a Speech
As this video shows, explaining the wrong thing to do can be a lot of fun. Additionally, a student who does something that everyone worked to explain shouldn't be done runs the risk of some good-natured ridicule.
If your students create some great how-not-to videos, we'd like to see them for possible inclusion in the NextVista.org library, so please share!
