Welcome back! Hope everyone has a great summer. I am very excited for the 2019-2020 school year and we have lots of exciting opportunities ahead. Each year we also need to sign an equipment and video release as well as a contract for professional career standard behavior. A paper copy will be handed out in class to read, sign and return and will need to be signed by the student, parent/guardian and the teacher before any independent equipment use. A copy is also attached here. SD cards, notebooks and equipment will be provided but students are responsible for them. This year we will also have a career field trip to ABC10, professional guest speakers and some updated set equipment.

The Broadcast and Media Arts Pathway recently took a career field trip for students from Broadcast Media 2 to see TV production jobs that are possible to get with their communication skills at Raley Field with the RiverCats. They also had a visit this past week from CBS13 on what social media careers can look like and what work they can do now.

Our first video project is underway due August 31st. Each level in the Broadcast and Media Arts Pathway features an opportunity to communicate a story and point of view with video as well as add a graphic and visual element. For Broadcast Media 1, it's called the "I am" video project and features 10 things about you. Broadcast Media 2: What Learner Profile do you most identify with and why Broadcast Media 3: Share an example of grit and how it could be a trait someone should hire you for, in 60 seconds. Projects in Broadcast Media are a bigger part of students' grades as the work showcases, demonstrates and models what they are learning and their progress.

Welcome back Tigers! We are happy to offer Broadcast Media 3 to the Broadcast and Media Arts Pathway program at Inderkum. All students in each level need to sign and return the rules and equipment release form to allow students to use camera equipment outside of class as well as have work seen on our "Tiger Talk" Youtube Channel. This form also needs to be signed by an adult at home. In addition, by signing students acknowledge they are responsible for equipment. The syllabus for each class is also attached. Students in Broadcast Media 2 & 3 also need to sign their syllabus as well as an adult to be aware of the work involved and bring it back signed to class.

Hello! First quarter grades come out October 13th. We had a writing prompt journal check and Google classroom check on Tuesday October 3rd. Students should be doing a writing prompt everyday, 3 sentences each to respond to the daily topic found on the board. Writing topics are also found on their Google classroom page on the about section. I encouraged the students to email with any concerns or visit me during lunch 4A (first lunch) or set up a time to meet. The writing prompts help us examine who, what, when, where, why and how questions to get the creativity flowing. Google classroom also offers us video lessons to reflect on and grow our skills. Students all have a Google classroom code and a free WeVideo editing account with their school gmail address. Ask them to show you our Tiger Talk Youtube page!

Students have been given a class syllabus for Broadcast Media 1 and if applicable the next level class, Broadcast Media 2. Both classes are part of the Broadcast and Media Arts Pathway. Our classes are graded a bit differently, with 50 % of the grade on projects that demonstrate skills learned. Over the year we work on building skills like video, editing and anchoring that culminate with creating their own story (Broadcast Media 1) or a whole show (Broadcast Media 2.) Students must model professional and respectful behavior and have a B average to go on field trips. Contacts: Please feel free to email Mrs. May with any questions [email protected] Daily work and rubrics: In addition each class has their own Google classroom code with daily assignments and daily writing prompts that are required and checked weekly. Periods 0-2 Code: mzdnw1 Periods 3-4 Code 2ofs74z Period 5 Code wvx5os (Broadcast Media 2) Announcements: Students are asked to sign up to Remind 101 by texting 81010 and then @broadcastm for announcements as well. Parents can join as well. Students are provided cameras for assignments but can use their phones as needed. They have class chrome books and share an SD card, but their own SD card would be a great thing to purchase if possible.

Welcome back! I am thrilled to be back and this year have two level classes offered in the Broadcast and Media Arts Pathway. Broadcast Media 1 is an introductory overview to the Broadcast Media industry and includes student news production, reporting, photojournalism editing and social media. Students will rotate jobs and be required to make their own news story for their final project. Broadcast Media 2 is the second course/level in the pathway. Students take a leadership role in the weekly production of the student news called "Tiger Talk." They develop deeper skills and will be required to produce their own show for their final project. Both courses involve career-based field trips as well as multiple guest industry speakers. Daily writing prompts as well as a student TV lab are part of the class. Notebooks are provided, it is helpful for students to have their own SD cards. Their digital portfolio of some class projects will be on the YouTube channel for Tiger Talk. Students and their families need to read, review and sign the Video and Expectations form to use camera gear as well as give clearance to be seen on camera and online.

Happy New Year! Hope everyone had a wonderful break! This semester we will dive into editing basics with ADOBE Premiere Pro. Our first project after break will be editing a video sequence on a timeline. We will continue to work on "Tiger Talk" show rotations and job skills with each role including anchor, director, teleprompter and camera operator. We will work in small groups and stress teamwork and interpersonal skills that will count towards grades. We will still begin each day with a writing prompt in our journals and will be taking notes in that journal as well. Future projects include a team pubic service announcement and we will culminate in having students write, video tape and edit their own "package" or news story by the end of the year. Class guests with expertise in TV jobs including news ethics, social media and sports will visit this semester. Don't forget there is a Broadcast Media 2 class next year where we go deeper into certain skills, as Broadcast Media 1 is a broad overview. Broadcast Media 2 will also develop longer shows and take the helm of "Tiger Talk."

Hello all. Getting a good interview involves listening, preparation and practice. As we work on our camera and video skills, we are moving from just "vo" or video only to "SOTS" or sound on tape. We have practiced shows as a team and now are working on interviewing and avoiding yes/no questions to get more detail. This Thursday we will have our SOT Class Project due, worth 8 points. Class projects are worth more towards your grade and are a great way to model and demonstrate what you have learned.

We are working on a video project this week to go over and demonstrate some of the basic camera skills so far, from wide shots to close-ups and cut-aways. The students are very creative and have three choices for video options, Halloween short video, Teen Driver Safety or a subject they are passionate about. It is due this Friday and worth 8 points towards their projects class grade. They have this week to work on it in class and can use the broadcast camera or cell phone as long as it is steady. It does not have to be edited or have music or sound.

We just completed a video version of the "Letters to the President" campaign to encourage students ages 13-18 to share their thoughts on issues and elections. Students had to tape a video of themselves talking on camera on their phone for at least 30 seconds but not longer than 2 minutes. They had to cite at least 2 facts they researched, keep the shot in focus and make sure the audio was clear and I could follow their concept or theme. This assignment was the first of their project grades and was worth a maximum of 8 points. The rubric and website we went over in class for a week and is posted on their google classroom page as well. This is designed as a way to begin getting comfortable telling stories on camera. The next project will involve using a video camera and telling a story with pictures and "vo" or video only.

Our most recent class project is the 6 word, 6 shots assignment to match a brief concept with pictures. The pictures can be taken on a camera and the students worked in small groups to come up with a concept. The project is now due, so ask them to share what they came up with, Very creative! These kinds of class projects help them prepare for their final project grade as well as count towards their class participation grade along with daily writing prompts.

SAFE DRIVING VIDEO PROJECT Due: Friday October 20, 2017
This video project involves quality video angles we have been covering for photojournalism including wide, medium and tight shots. The theme of the video is safe driving. We have watched several examples in class and practiced with the cameras. Students can take the cameras home to use as well and must sign them up. Having your own SD card is helpful but not required. But students should save their video and then start to edit. We have a free editing program to use on any phone, computer or i-pad called WeVideo as well as i-movie and Adobe Premiere Pro.

Letters to the President Video Project Due: Friday September 16, 2016
Hello, this project is due Friday as we've been sharing all week. It will be worth 8 points as part of your class project grade, which is weighted more heavily than other categories like summative quizzes. The video is to show students on camera, recorded via cell phone, sharing an issue they are passionate about as if they were telling the President. They must research several facts to go with it to support their idea, versus just say "no more homework " but actually site a statistic that says how much you get a day etc They can submit the video by Friday via email, through the Google drive via the Google app or show Mrs. May. Props are allowed but the focus is following the concept they have in mind, being able to hear and see clearly and notice the facts. We are using the chrome books this week to research and see other project ideas as well.
