Adobe Elements 10 - Earthquake Reporter Assessment Task

Assessment Published 9/10/13 Last updated on 2/28/20

This assessment task was designed to be given to a stage 3 (year 6) class in Sydney.

It assumes the students have a basic understanding of Premiere Elements.

It was designed to be given towards the end of a unit of work during which students have completed a series of eight lessons and experiments which covered essential facts, figures and data about earthquakes.

The Task:You are a TV news reporter reporting live from the scene of a recent earthquake. This earthquake is to be one that has occurred over the past five years somewhere in the world. You are to choose an earthquake which has caused damage and effected the lives of people. Using your understanding of earthquakes you are to write and record a one minute news report from the scene.

You will record yourself speaking in front of a green screen and merge that report with a slide show and/or video clips to create your own TV news report suitable for viewing on a computer.
