Use of Resources and Citations During Research and Note Taking Sources of information and graphics are properly cited using citations.

All sources of information are clearly identified and credited using citations.

Most sources of information are identified using proper citation.

No citations are included.

 
Storyboard

The storyboard illustrates the video presentation structure with thumbnail sketches of each scene. Notes of proposed transition, special effects, sound and title tracks include: text, background color, placement & size of graphic, fonts - color, size, type for text and headings. Notes about proposed dialogue/narration text are included.

The storyboard includes thumbnail sketches of each video scene and includes text for each segment of the presentation, descriptions of background audio for each scene, and notes about proposed shots and dialogue.

 

The thumbnail sketches on the storyboard are not in a logical sequence and do not provide complete descriptions of the video scenes, audio background, or notes about the dialogue.

There is no evidence of a storyboard.

 
All sketches are numbered, and there is a logical sequence to the presentation. All sketches are organized and numbered in a logical sequence.      
Content/Organization

The content includes a clear statement of purpose or theme and is creative, compelling and clearly written. A rich variety of supporting information in the video contributes to understanding the project's main idea. The project includes motivating questions and advanced organizers that provide the audience with a sense of the presentation's main idea. Events and messages are presented in a logical order.

Information is presented as a connected theme with accurate, current supporting information that contributes to understanding the project's main idea.

The content does not present a clearly stated theme, is vague, and some of the supporting information does not seem to fit the main idea or appears as a disconnected series of scenes with no unifying main idea.

The content lacks a central theme, clear point of view and logical sequence of information. Much of the supporting information in the video is irrelevant to the overall message. The viewer is unsure what the message is because there is little persuasive information and only one or two facts about the topic. Information is incomplete, out of date and/or incorrect.
