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!
