In the coming weeks the class now will be starting real news stories within our school. Items such as lit circles in classrooms, litter within the school, Olympics units, as well as getting to know you pieces with staff and people inside our school are all going to be planned. To get the students ready for this I decided to put together a sample video with clips I took when our school put together a pancake breakfast. It gives the students a general idea of the expectations.
The challenge so far has been finding the right way to have them edit their videos. Putting students into groups and having them cooperate to edit has been a huge challenge so far. They are learning how to work together and give up control on a project.
