Week of December 13th

Monday: Students are continuing to wrap up Session 5 and 6 using shape tweens, morphing words and shapes. They will learn how to add sound to their movie and export their movie.


Tuesday: Students will evaluate each other’s movies and give ideas or make a suggestion to students where they see fit. They have some fabulous, detailed work!


Wednesday: Students will be submitting to me a story board that explains what they intend to do for their final project. I will give them a rubric of the objectives they need to include in their movie. Students will be allowed to create a cheat sheet for themselves ahead of time, they will not be able to access their session packets during the final.

Starting today students will begin creating a movie using a rubric that requires them to include the things we learned how to do this semester.
