1 quarter
  • I can look at popular edits and I can look at past edits that people have done before in this class.
  • My teacher will be some of my friends who know how to make Basketball edits
  • I can look at popular edits on YouTube that can help me out
Some parts of this project that may be difficult is me not knowing much about Basketball edits, one way I would fail is that if I don't make enough basketball edits by the end of my project
Sharing/Teaching/Paying It Forward
  • I can share it through social media
  • My friends and family will see it
How will you define the projects success? I will try to make a before and after of my improvement of NBA edit making How will you know that your “good” is “good enough”? I will see what my friends think about my videos (youtube comments)
How should we evaluate your success?
Telling me what else I could work on to improve my videos even better
How will that be "visible" to others? I will show my friends a before and after of improvement (Demonstrate) Can your progress be measured throughout the project? Yes, they can see how much I learned in improving edits if I show them each one of my videos
“What are you making? NBA basketball edits” “Why are you making this?” Because I enjoy basketball and I think I will learn in this project and enjoy this project and “Who is it for?” I will post it online so anyone, but friends and family first
