I was thinking about how to created a compelling educational experience related to fashion. I think that upper elementary student would enjoy analyzing an episode of "What Not to Wear." However what if they took this a step further. Students could create a humorous fashion show called "What Not To Wear." Students could create interesting outfits to take turns modeling. As a writing connection, each student could write a commentary describing a classmates choice of clothing. Oral reading skills would be demonstrated by the students as well as they read the commentary while their classmate modeled the clothing. Technology could also be integrated into this assignment. Students could make a video of their fashion show with commentary using Windows Movie Maker.
