How is your team progressing on your Kaua'i Grown responsibilities? Despite our meetings in class, I still do not see things being completed or posted in Basecamp and I do not understand why. I am also not seeing daily check-ins as I've asked you to do. From now on, your ticket out the door before you leave for advisory and advanced media is to complete your check-in if you worked on anything for Kaua'i Grown.
Are YOU taking care of YOUR responsibilities? For this week's blog post I want you to write about whether or not you are fulfilling your responsibilities. I'm talking about creating your posts in Basecamp, completing your daily check-ins, and anything else related to this project. I want you to list three examples backing up your answer. If you say yes, you are doing your job then give me three examples why. If you are not, then I want at least three reasons why not. This is your 4th quarter project people! We are not messing around with the last quarter of the school year! We have a lot of work that needs to get done before we exit for the summer so let's get on it!
For this week's blog topic, I'd like you to think about our class and all that we have to do within the school year. Think of all of your responsibilities, opportunities, and the many things that are learned. I'd like you to write about three specific things that this class has helped you with outside of our class. For example, if you want to say that media has taught you how to edit in FCP X, well, how has that helped you OUTSIDE of this class? Do you now edit videos for your church, other classes, or in scouting? How have you taken what you've learned in media and applied it to other areas of your life? List at least three things AND explain how they have helped in these other areas.
Let's get a head start on the end of year activities by thinking about what video we want to share at our family night. Tell me about the videos you are thinking of using and see if you can choose one this week. Then tell me three reasons why you chose it to show to our families. Let's make the deadline on this post gang! #good2great
We've now been in school for more than a quarter and you've had some time to assess how things have been going. We've had many changes this year to our advanced class, from having zero 6th graders to only having 13 students. Many students left last year and because of that we've all had to take on more work to get the same things done, like our morning announcements and radios. How do you feel about all of this? How does this year compare to last year? Better? Worse? Same? What else can we all do to make things better? Let me know what you think about how things are going and be sure to tell me why. Focus on three things to write about and be sure you write your blog in the constructed response format with an intro, three paragraphs about your three things you'll talk about, and then a conclusion. If you vlog, about it, make sure you still follow that format in what you talk about.
With our smaller class this year, what has been the toughest challenge for you individually to deal with? Do you feel the work is more, the same, or less than last year? For sure we have more Inside Scoops to do. That's easy to figure out. But how is the rest of the work? I've tried to give a few of you teams of 3 this year to help with projects. Has that made any difference for you? Give me your honest feedback on how the workload has been so far in the first quarter.
With a new school year upon us, what are your goals? I'm talking in terms of the entire year. What do you hope to accomplish in this year of advanced media? Think about all that you want to learn, accomplish, or do and come up with at least three things to share.
Oh, and by the way, since we've said we want to work on a short film this year, here is a good YouTube Channel that explains the entire process. It's very entertaining and educational! Check it out!
For this week's blog post, I'd like you to think back on the past year in media. What are the three most important lessons you've learned in this class? As always, you'll need to back them up with reasons and write it in a 5 paragraph constructed response, unless you choose to do a vlog. I'm interested to see what your top three could be!
For this week's blog post I'd like you to think about what video you will be sharing for our annual family night dinner coming up. Each student needs to share a video that he/she worked on and it can't be repeated by anyone else so you will need to talk to your classmates about this. You are required to post the video in your Google Drive in a folder I shared with you.
For this week's blog, tell me what video you have selected and give me three reasons why you feel it is worth sharing that night.
For this week's blog post I'd like you to write about how your Kauai Grown team is doing. The three things I'd like you to share is what has your team done so far, what will you be doing this week to make some progress, and what are some obstacles that are in your way in getting things done? Be sure you've written your blog in the 5 paragraph constructed response format.
For this week's blog post, I'd like you to tell me what your top three moments/learnings were from our recently completed STN trip. Take a moment to think back and see if you can narrow the top things you learned or experienced into your top three. I want to know not only what they were but WHY they were meaningful to you. Be sure to explain your answers in your blog in the constructed response format.
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!
