MS: Informational Video Print

The 7th graders in Ms. Nancy Clawson’s Computer Explorations class are working on designing a 3-5 minute video about Washington Middle School (WMS) that could be used for incoming students and parents. The task is to put together information and footage that a new student/parent would want to know about WMS. At least one of these videos will be posted to the WMS website upon completion. The students work as a team with selection of pictures, video and content. Each team has a project leader each day that rotates around the group giving everyone managerial experience. The students learn about the business world as this project evolves. Initial job applications (including references) had to be filled out, health insurance plans signed up for, fines and bonuses must be recorded on spreadsheets along with the daily pay rate, etc.; as the students enter into a corporate contract to produce their video. Pictured here is one of the teams: Sam, Ryan, Mitchell and Mark. Good luck 7th graders; enjoy the great experience of with a taste of the real world!
