Being that this week is Thanksgiving, what are three things that you are thankful for this year? What have you been blessed with and why are you thankful for them? I am thankful to be employed and teaching a great group of students, healthy, and ALIVE! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
We all make mistakes. It's part of human nature. Depending on the circumstances and who's involved, mistakes can be small or large. Sometimes our mistakes can even hurt ourselves or the people around us. If you could go back in time and correct a mistake that you made, what mistake would you correct? Explain what happened and provide me with at least three reasons why you'd like to go back and have a "do over."
Be sure to leave a comment on that page that explains what you should do when filming in public. That needs to be taken care of this week. Good luck!
I received an email from a friend who was recently visited by two of our students. He contacted me because these students just assumed that they could film inside of his establishment and did not ASK FIRST. I apologized on our student's behalf and said that I would talk to the class about it. I created a new class resource about this issue and want all of you to go over to that page, read what it's about, and then COMMENT on the bottom, noting that you read it. We want to be sure that when we are out in public, we always ASK PERMISSION FIRST before we film, especially if we enter a business. Please follow this link to the page, read it, and comment on it so that I know that you read it. Mahalo!
For those of you going on the trip this year to STN, we need to start thinking of what contest you want to compete in. For middle schools, your choices are:
ANCHOR TEAM - 2 students, one anchor and one camera
COMMERCIAL - 4 students creating a commercial on a given product
MOVIE TRAILER - 4 students creating a movie trailer on a given movie title
MUSIC VIDEO - 4 students creating a music video based on one of two songs provided
PSA - 4 students creating a PSA on a given topic
SPOT FEATURE - 3 students creating a story on a given topic
Which contest are you interested in and why? Give me three reasons why you should be put on the team of your choice.
For this week's required blog post, I'd like you to fill me in on where you are at regarding your new project. Are you ahead of schedule, on schedule, or behind schedule? What do you plan on working on this week due to the short days? Fill me in.
I currently teach Advanced Media Production, Beginning Media Production, the Yearbook Class, two Intro to Computing - iPad Classes, and I am also the school's technology coordinator. You can say I wear many hats here at CKMS!
