    LA – Today we began our final unit of LA8 . . . film study. Students were introduced to 10 film techniques and together we analyzed a Pixar Short Film (Gerry’s Game) for example of these techniques. In the next 2 – 3 classes, students will complete their own analysis using a short film of their choice. Once they have identified the techniques used, they will create an electronic presentation to share their analysis with their peers. This sharing will take place early next week.
    SS – Students had a final work block on their Avatar – Spanish/Aztec Connections project. These are now due. We will play a review Jeopardy game tomorrow in preparation for Friday’s unit exam.

    • After asking the students to write Jeopardy questions for a review game for our Aztec unit test, we were surprised to learn that most of the class had never watched Jeopardy before! We found a short clip of the show to watch as a class, and discussed the unique way that these questions are written. Students were then asked to choose a category and write 5 questions relating to the Aztec Unit  that fit with their chosen category. We will compile these questions into one Jeopardy game to play on Thursday.
    • Avatar connection project due Thursday.
    • Aztec Unit Exam Friday.
    • Waterpark field trip next Wednesday.
    • Awards ceremony next Thursday afternoon. Emails and letters went home today to families of students who are receiving an award.
