    Author:Cheng-Nan Yu & Tai-Chien Kao
Research Note


 The purpose of this study was to explore the teaching design of instructional modules for teenagers to make documentaries. To conform to the educational trends asking students to step outside the classrooms and participate in the society, the method of process  flow diagram was applied to help students clarify social issues, invent creative stories for documentaries, and therefore establish connections with the society. The method of design research through multiple iterative processes was employed. The subjects were 52 teenagers who produced 16 documentaries from 2010 to 2016. Three instructional modules were constucted from this study. They were “foundational process module”, “joining storytelling module”, and “adding viewpoint for clarification module” which could be used separately or simultaneously in teaching. These modules could be used as guidelines to help students form storylines for documentaries from their own viewpoints that could lead to social participation.
