Leading Edge Academy, sixth graders, are privileged to be using their knowledge of Greek myths and culture to make an I-movie about a certain assigned myth. Students marveled at the start of this project choosing a group of about 3-6 people. They used Ipads to film and prepare the videos. The due date is Friday, 13; and students are already in the editing phase of their projects. The project was assigned on Thursday, the 5th. One thing that is amazing about this project, is that students are not only using the LE pillar; Building Partnerships/Shared Leaderships, but also are bringing/making excellent costumes which portray their role.
In Period 5 Expressions, Ivan, Try, Angel, and I (Amol); are making our Imovie on the Greek myths of Creation and The Titans. The reason that we are doing both is that both of them are small, however they both come with a lot of reasoning. Creation is a myth which tells about the origin of the gods, and how they became the new rulers of the world. The Titans, is a myth about the old rulers of the world and their life.
In an interview with Manelle Aruta, she said that this project was a fun way of learning new things. Another thing, she talked about how this project is a great way to work with partners. She felt that this project helps us learn more stuff about the Greek culture and their history.
From a student perspective, I feel that this is a great project, and is very fun to collaborate with other students. I love to use technology into my work, and doing it with friends. I also love that we get to dress up and add edits, as it bring life into the video, and to the production process of our video. Another thing, I love to use I-movie, and since we are using it in the class, it is very fun. Also my friends feel the same way that I do about this project, and we love to shoot our movie together.
