Displaying Poetry: Using the Video Camera
This project is about video taping students reciting their poetry using a digital video camcorder. I will videotape the students so that each one can see their own and other's poetry being "published". I will also be using iMovie to edit the videotape.
I will get the video camera and microphone and set it up. Next I will videotape the pupil reciting or reading their poem and doing what ever it is they need to do such as displaying their poetry. Then I will connect the digital video camera using a fire wire cable to the computer and download the video to iMovie. I will edit the video adding transitions, titles, credits, and music. When I have finished I will "Display The Poetry" by exporting the video in a quick time format to CD. I will display the video to the class using a projector.

My project is to help my classmates each create a haiku about weather. We will be looking at different haikus. We will be looking at cyclones, tornadoes, storms, clouds, and fires. The class will find a picture off the Internet, print it, and write a haiku on the picture they picked.
Project with Beverly Farms
Students in my class at Hoover will be going to the nearby elementary school, Beverly Farms. About 8 of us will be working with 2nd graders in Ms. Koningsburg's class. We will each pair up with one of the students and will be illustrating a sotry that they create. As the class is working on web design, we will probably post the illustrations to the web using anything that interests us.
