Promote Health with Public Service Announcements (PSAs)

Lesson Plan Published 1/27/15 Last updated on 2/28/20
Students will create a 30-second video to encourage viewers to adopt healthy habits. They will learn to evaluate effective PSAs through a guided watching activity and then work in small groups to build PSAs, using researched facts, a storyboarding template, and the Adobe Premiere Clip app. Groups will share their PSAs with the class and use a rubric to evaluate one another’s PSAs.
