Instructional Screencast Task Analysis/Content Outline and Script

By: Patti Deep


Background Information: I attended a media workshop this past week. One of the workshops included a
seminar on how to use ProQuest (SIRS Discoverer webfind and images) when planning lessons. First, I
will deliver this information to the kindergarten through fifth grade teachers. This podcast will be
designed for teachers.
Later, I will begin presenting this program to third through fifth grade students. I will plan a podcast for
students at a later date that will give details on how students can discover information for projects
within this website.
