Lights, Camera, Communication!

Carol Kelly’s 8th grade Language Arts class closed out the term with group video projects, in which they planned and created three-minute movies on topics of their choice.  And what topics they were – spoofs of commercials, holiday themes, edits of YouTube cartoons, and planking* all around Emerson!  Clever, amusing, and fun.

The story behind the video stories was communication –  working effectively in small groups and presenting ideas in visual format. Take a bow, Carol, for a crowd-pleasing, applause-worthy learning experience.

* What is planking, you ask?  Lie face down, hands at side, in an unusual or incongruous location – now you’re planking!
