The Script of Rant Video: Occupation and Gender
1 Topic: Occupation and Gender
2 Create the message you want to convey to others regarding this topic. Here are a few examples I have generated to demonstrate what I mean by ‘the message’:
Ø how important it is to incorporate self-care in everything you do
Ø why it is important to critically examine your assumptions regarding individuals or groups that are dissimilar to yourself
Ø ways that we can tackle the stigma of mental health and be more supportive
Ø how gender and sexuality differ and why this is important to understand
3 Build a script that provides the context and/or description of what is currently happening, regarding your topic and message, and what you feel (strongly) needs to change. What does this new change/vision bring to society? What evidence can you cite/share that gives your argument credibility? How will society benefit from your ‘new way of being’ (e.g., open-minded, accepting) or ‘becoming’ (e.g., an ally, an advocate, a listener)?
4 Videotape yourself (or have someone be camera-operator), as Rick Mercer does, monologuing your thoughts and/or script as if you are speaking to a group of people who are unaware, apathetic, naïve, or doubters of your topic and/or message.
Ø The video must be between 2:00 mins in length.
Ø The content of your video should be organized, interesting and build a story from your topic, to your message, to your evidence, to why this is important and how society will benefit if they follow your advice; or how we will continue to harm each other and Mother Earth if we continue the way we are, and don’t change.
Ø Label your video with your first and last name
