4/23-4/27

Students will be working this week on video project 7.  All filming for this project must be completed this week, since we will not be allowed out of the classroom after this week due to testing throughout the school.  Project 7 is due on May 2nd. 

Students will also be working this week on assignments on a website called Virtual Job shadow.  They will be taking personality tests to see which type of careers best suit them.  The personality test assignments are due by Friday 4/27. 

If students finish project 7 early and finish the personality tests, they may begin working on their video reels.  Video reels are like a video resume, highlighting their best work from the semester.  Video reels will be due by 5/16.

4/9 - 4/13

Welcome Back!  We are in the home stretch.  There is a lot going on at the end of the year, but please don't lose focus. 

This week, we will continue reviewing material for the End of Pathway for Audio Video Technology and Film.  The End of Pathway will be on April 18th at 8:25 in room 803.  Level III students are the ones taking the End of Pathway test, but level II students join in the review, so they will feel more comfortable with the material when it is their turn to test. 

Level II & Level III students will have a test on Thursday of this week covering End of Pathway terms. 

When we are not reviewing for tests this week, we are working on our 6th video projects due on 4/18.  Students should keep in mind to create good content as we will soon start working on our video reels, a video resume with samples of their best work.

With the End of Pathway for Level 3 Video Production students scheduled for April 18th, we will begin reviewing material for that test in class this week.  Level 2 students and Level 3 students will both be involved in the review.  Even though level 2 students do not take the End of Pathway test, the material covered will be included in our Semester Final.  Level 3 students should carve some time out of their break to review the material for the End of Pathway.  We will continue reviewing for the End of Pathway after the break.  The study guides and information for the test is in Schoology under Materials in the End of Course Assessment Study Guide Folder.

We also have projects due on Wednesday of this week.
