In my Spring 2005 Prophets and Prophecy class, I had students in four groups make a Quicktime movie about a chapter or two in Jeremiah. You can see these four movies (and ones from previous semesters) by going to this page. I think perhaps my favorite one this semester was Jeremiah 27-28. It involved the famous showdown with Hananiah, and also some boring diet coke drinking fat loser teacher in a sweater vest who may or not be Dr Homan. I think these are a great teaching tool, especially towards the end of the semester. Students really get into it, and unlike class presentations, these digital movies are online records documenting student learning. Plus they can show their friends and families.
