The Week of 05/16 through 05/20- 1. 30 Days/2. Final Portfolio

Unfortunately we are still in the hospital with my daughter. She is in isolation and facing surgery hopefully Wednesday.  I wish I could be there as this is a fun time of year. If everything goes well I should be back Thursday 05/19.

After you have finished the articles from last week there are 2 things that you need to do.

1. Make a powerpoint presentation rather than a film for the 30 days project. (make the alternative assignment.)

2. Collect work from other classes to post in your blog.

Part 1 – Due 05/23 and ready to present as part of the Finals Day. You will need to email these to me by 05/23 and will not have time to work on them during class for the first block.

Ok so since I am not there I can’t help you film with the cameras. You are welcome to use your own but are no longer required to film any part of the 30 days project.

Essential Question: “What are the big issue concerning work?”

Objective: Using their 30 days script scenarios. Students will write a specific 30 days script and then make a powerpoint/imovie or prezi for a 30 days opening sequence.

Alternative assignment: Students may also decide to present their 30 days opening sequence with a powerpoint or Prezi.  Students will still need to write a specific script but may create a timed slide show 45-60 seconds. You will need to explain all of the big issues around your career choice (choose your angle.) You will need to include at least 8 images and include the “We will find out as a . . . .  lives with/as a . . . . for the next, 30 Days.”
