So, here goes.
Yesterday, my Film Production students went on a field trip to Noddin Elementary School. I'd met some of the teachers over the summer when I was directing a miniMERIT through the KCI and we'd discussed the possibility of connecting my high school kids with their 2nd graders. Toward the beginning of the school year, one of the teachers, Julie, contacted me to start setting up a visit day. She coordinated a full-day experience with multiple teachers and grade levels (awesomely-well, I might add), so all I had to do was prep my kids with some iPad skills and get them over there.
The kids split up into several groups in the morning, each working with a select group of 2nd-graders. One class was filming commercials for books they had read recently.
