Read at least 20 minutes Monday- Thursday night. 4 on line reading logs due Friday.


You will be creating a video that is no more than 90 seconds and based on something you learned THIS SCHOOL YEAR in 6th grade.  It can be from any subject.  You may bring your own device to record on Thursdays, however, I am not responsible for lost, broken or misused equipment.  Otherwise, there will be chromebooks and iPads for your use.  You will need to be able to edit your video using WeVideo or iMovie (I recommend WeVideo because you can use that at home).  You may do a video by yourself or in a group of up to 4 people.  You will turn in a script.  That will be the part that is graded, including sources.  

You do not have to enter your video in the Next Vista contest, however, you must follow all the rules that apply to the contest.
