TV 1: Commercials Begin

I assigned Ch. 7 Lighting notes yesterday, but I am moving the due date for that quiz/notes to the Wednesday we return from Spring Break. It’s a half day (4/12).

We then completed these notes using this PowerPoint regarding rhetorical devices and a few YouTube clip sample commercials I had and the ones you submitted. I checked these notes in for points but did not collect.

Afterwards, I assigned your commercial/advertising project, and you got to work on your proposal with your group members for the remainder of the hour. I will need to see the proposal/storyboard/script before your team is issued a camera.

Homework: Your scavenger hunt reflection is due tomorrow at the beginning of the hour.

R&W: Work Experience and Resume Drafting

Fourth hour first had to finish the practice job application work from Friday, and I checked it in for points of completion. Afterwards, you worked on this work experience worksheet with this handout for verb assistance. I checked it in for points before you began working on drafting your resumes. We will meet in the library tomorrow to continue drafting.

All Classes: Friday/Weekend Updates

TV 1: After your Ch. 6 Quiz, you had the rest of the hour to work on your scavenger hunt projects. The due date has been moved to Monday at the end of the hour.

R&W: Fourth hour first took their job application notes in their notebooks since they ran out of time yesterday. We then did a practice application together as a class. You received participation points for completing it. Afterwards, third hour worked on action verb one-liner writing for our employment/volunteer history using this worksheet (fourth hour will do this on Monday). On Monday we will look at sample resume templates (Professional, Elegant, or Contemporary) or those that are also available on Word/Google Docs. You will begin working on your resume next week.

TV 2: We had announcements today while the rest of the class worked on their first video project for MP 5.

JRN: Editor-in-Chief edits were due by the end of the hour today. If you got them to KR early, you were able to work on your tabloid project articles. You should have at least two in the works at this point.

R&W: Employability Begins

Fourth hour read from their SSR books since they ran out of time yesterday to do so. From there we completed two bellworks: 1 and 2. Afterwards, we took the attached notes regarding job applications in our notebooks (fourth hour will need to take these first thing tomorrow). These were stamped in before you got started working on this Skills “Quiz” that is due tomorrow at the beginning of the hour. Use it, if possible/applicable, to update your resume worksheet.

R&W: YM, SSR, and Employability

We first finished watching the following clips from the second doc, The Yes Men Fix the World: Clips 1, 2 and 3. After each of the three clips, we jotted down (there are no related questions to the second doc on the viewing guide) underneath our skipped clip 9 from the first doc, a brief take away from each. Before submitting, at the back of the last page, on the bottom, we wrote down what we believed would be the Yes Men’s definition of globalization and our own definition of globalization to wrap up our unit. Afterwards, we silently read from our SSR books (fourth hour will begin with SSR tomorrow). This resume worksheet is due tomorrow to kick off our employability unit. Bring your notebooks tomorrow.  

All YM clips are in this folder.
