My Students

Our middle school serves over 900 students in grades 6th-8th. I have the opportunity to work with most of them throughout the year. They come from all different parts of the country and all over the world. There are approximately 30 different languages and dialects spoken in our building as well as a wide variety of ethnic, economic and social backgrounds.

These amazing students challenge me to develop intriguing and engaging activities for them every day.

They are full of all different levels of prior knowledge and they bring so much to the classroom. They have the ability to take charge of their learning and these materials will give them essential tools to be able to do just that.

My Project

Lights, camera, action! My middle school students are eager to experience what it would be like to create high-quality videos as they see on TV. During my coding and design class students create apps, websites, and animated games. The next step of their course is to produce a video that will advertise their creations.

My students will produce video advertisements using the iPad, lights, and microphones.

The iPad will be used to film the video and transfer the data to each student's google account for editing. The lapel microphones will assist with the sound quality of the students being recorded. The ring lighting will enhance the quality of light, especially in the green screen studio. This project will help students who are interested in going into the television production profession be college and professional ready.
