My Classes

 

I teach four (4) courses at ASTEC: 

Film/Digital Media - this course explains the fundamentals of film production, including script writing, pre-production, storyboarding, lighting, camera operation, editing, sound and scene composition. Scholars apply these skills to create their own unique works. Scholars examine the moving image of their stories in history and assess its impact on culture, technology and our daily lives. Scholars review and critique important films and develop the skills to read and analyze them as one would a novel, a poem or a short story.

Broadcasting - this course teaches scholars the fundamentals of journalism and journalistic responsibility as well as applying those skills to navigate the modern media landscape for radio, television and newscasts. This information is applied to the creation of news stories covering ASTEC schools as well as current events and subjects being taught within the ASTEC curriculum. While creating these stories scholars learn script writing, pre-production, lighting, camera operation, editing, sound and shot composition. Scholars examine the story of journalism in American history and assess the current changes in the way modern audiences consume information.

 

Yearbook - In this course, scholars work as a team to develop, create, and produce a quality yearbook that documents significant moments during the ASTEC school year. Digital Media empowers scholars to enhance their photography, finance, advertising/marketing, editing, design leadership and other skills. Scholars create unique projects in cooperation with others, describe and explain concepts of digital citizenship and its impact on society and actively participate in the design, implementation and evaluation of a quality business plan.

Desktop Publishing - this course explains the fundamentals of film and podcast production, including script writing, pre-production, storyboarding, lighting, camera operation, editing, sound recording, and scene composition. Scholars apply these skills to create their own unique works. Scholars examine the moving image of their stories in history and assess its impact on culture, technology and our daily lives. Scholars review and critique important films and podcasts to develop the skills to read and analyze them as one would a novel, a poem or a short story.
