Digital Sample Modules

← Back to Projects

CSA Education wrote, edited, storyboarded, voiced, designed, and animated the digital learning experience in order to provide a relevant set of samples of our capabilities. The digital sample modules do not showcase all of the capabilities of the CSA Education team as we had to define our own scope (tempo, options, real-world applications, etc.). Our goal was to take a topic and use the best tech applications to teach that specific topic. We invite you to discuss your own project parameters with us. We would love to hear your feedback on our samples!

ELA Sample Digital Module

CSA Education wrote, edited, storyboarded, voiced, designed, and animated
digital materials to teach the concept of theme in stories to fifth-grade students. 

LESSON: THEME
TARGET AUDIENCE: 5TH GRADE

The Animated Video is an introduction to themes in stories. It can be used in conjunction with the digital interactive module to introduce theme and how authors develop it. The video can also be used as an introduction to a traditional lesson on theme. CSA Education can also develop live-action videos to expand lesson concepts.

The Digital Learning Experience allows students to explore themes more deeply and put what they have learned into practice. These digital modules can be crafted by CSA Education to act as stand-alone lessons or to complement specific stories. For example, this sample is designed specifically for the story “The Scholarship Jacket.” It should be noted that excerpts of “The Scholarship Jacket” are in the digital learning experience. The story does not appear in its entirety. This digital interactive could be a supplemental activity for students already reading the story or simply an additional theme-related activity. CSA Education could add a feature that allows the story to be accessible to students so that they can read it and then complete the experience. If students complete the activity on their own, the animated video is meant as an introduction to the experience.

Some student features have been disabled for demonstration purposes.


STANDARDS

CCSS RL.5.1: Quote accurately from a text when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text. 
CCSS RL.5.2: Determine a theme of a story, drama, or poem from details in the text, including how characters in a story or drama respond to challenges or how the speaker in a poem reflects upon a topic; summarize a text. 
CCSS RL.5.3: Compare and contrast two or more characters, settings, or events in a story or drama, drawing on specific details in the text (e.g., how characters interact). 
CCSS RL.5.4: Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including figurative language such as metaphors and similes.


Science Sample Digital Module

CSA Education wrote, edited, storyboarded, voiced, designed, and animated the digital learning experience to investigate a real-world phenomenon of the effect of rising water on coastlines. 

LESSON: CHANGING COASTLINES
TARGET AUDIENCE: 2ND GRADE

The Digital Learning Experience: Science allows students to use inquiry to investigate a real-world phenomenon. CSA Education can design digital learning experiences to support or extend learning of a concept that has been previously introduced or to act as stand-alone lessons for teaching a new concept in an applicable way. In this example, students are presented with an investigation wherein they make predictions, establish patterns, and collect and analyze data to make conclusions. Formative and summative NGSS-aligned assessments at various DOK levels are embedded in the digital learning experience to allow for assessment for and of learning.

Some student features have been disabled for demonstration purposes.

Social Studies Sample Digital Module

CSA Education wrote, edited, storyboarded, voiced, and designed the digital learning experience to teach the Progressive Era to middle school students. 

LESSON: INDUSTRY AND SOCIETY IN THE PROGRESSIVE ERA
TARGET AUDIENCE: MIDDLE SCHOOL

The Digital Learning Experience: Social studies encourages students to have a deeper dive into themes and topics of history. CSA Education can design these digital lessons to support learning in all realms of social studies curricula. A digital lesson can be tailored to function as an independent teaching tool or as a supplementary experience. In this example, students read the selection “Industry and Society in the Progressive Era” and then use the interactive lesson to respond to questions and writing prompts based on the reading. The activities allow students to access skills in higher-order thinking and engage in practice at a variety of DOK levels. 

Some student features have been disabled for demonstration purposes.


STANDARDS

CCSS RH.6-8.1: Cite specific textual evidence to support analysis of primary and secondary sources. 
CCSS RH.6-8.4: Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including vocabulary specific to domains related to history/social studies. 
CCSS RH.6-8.6: Identify aspects of a text that reveal an author’s point of view or purpose (e.g., loaded language, inclusion or avoidance of particular facts). 
CCSS RH.6-8.7: Integrate visual information (e.g., in charts, graphs, photographs, videos, or maps) with other information in print and digital texts.


Math Sample Digital Module

CSA Education wrote, edited, storyboarded, voiced, designed, and animated the digital learning experience to investigate a real-world problem involving volume to teach the concept to fifth-grade students.

LESSON: FINDING VOLUME
TARGET AUDIENCE: 5TH GRADE

The animated video included within the digital learning experience introduces the problem students will need to solve, gives an overview of the learning taking place, and introduces the objectives of the digital learning experience. The intention is to motivate and prepare students for learning, while the digital experience allows students to explore the concept more deeply and to practice what they’ve learned. The pieces can be used to complement each other or as individual activities. CSA Education can also develop live-action videos to expand lesson concepts.

The Digital Learning Experience: Math uses problem-based learning to promote enjoyment, excitement, and motivation throughout the experience. CSA Education can create and design these digital learning experiences to support learning in the classroom or act as stand-alone learning experiences for students. In this example, students are motivated from the beginning to determine the volume of a fish tank that will be used in a doctors’ waiting room. Students earn items for their fish tank as they answer CCSS-aligned formative assessments that review concepts of three-digit multiplication and solve problems associated with volume. Students apply their learning to determine the volume of a fish tank. This digital learning experience sustains student enjoyment and motivation while teaching an essential skill by having students solve a complex problem.

CCSS STANDARDS

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.MD.C.3: Recognize volume as an attribute of solid figures and understand concepts of volume measurement.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.MD.C.3.A: A cube with side length 1 unit, called a “unit cube,” is said to have “one cubic unit” of volume, and can be used to measure volume.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.MD.C.3.B: A solid figure which can be packed without gaps or overlaps using n unit cubes is said to have a volume of n cubic units.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.MD.C.4: Measure volumes by counting unit cubes, using cubic cm, cubic in, cubic ft, and improvised units.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.MD.C.5: Relate volume to the operations of multiplication and addition and solve real world and mathematical problems involving volume.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.MD.C.5.A: Find the volume of a right rectangular prism with whole-number side lengths by packing it with unit cubes, and show that the volume is the same as would be found by multiplying the edge lengths, equivalently by multiplying the height by the area of the base. Represent threefold whole-number products as volumes, e.g., to represent the associative property of multiplication.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.MD.C.5.B: Apply the formulas V = l × w × h and V = b × h for rectangular prisms to find volumes of right rectangular prisms with whole-number edge lengths in the context of solving real world and mathematical problems.
