2016-2017

  • Eden and Ellie Bracelet Project
    • Our project includes two members which are me and Ellie cook. We decided that we wanted to raise money for a good cause but incorporate what we love to do into it so we created " Eden and Ellie Bracelets". Our project is a bracelet manufacturing company that raises money for breast cancer awareness. We have given away many bracelets and have only sold few but we are still trying to keep our project thriving. We plan on switching projects next quarter. We are still very proud of the progress we have made and plan on coming back to the sometime in the future.
    • ues.
    • Our project is a movie with Sirena, Brayden, Kate, Paris, Gian, Perry, Ben, and Elaina. We decided that we would make our movie a spy/comedy movie. We decided to do this because we have never made a movie before until thinkering. We learned too much and now we have an understanding of what it takes to make a good movie. We posted it to our former youtube channel and its already gotten 7 views?! Its only been up for 2 days!!!!! We are very proud. We are switching partners next quarter.
    • I chose this project because when you film its really fun to do with your friends. It can also expand your learning about how things are made. A lot of people don't understand how much effort it takes to make a proper movie or short film. We really wanted to expand other peoples horizons too. Our overall purpose of this project was to help people become more interested in making movies.
    • Eden and Sirena Raindrop cake
      Our project is making a professional YouTube DIY channel. If you dont know what DIY is its an abbreviation of do it yourself. We created many YouTube videos but only ended up posting a few. Most of our projects consist of gelatin food or slime. For some reason the public seem to enjoy watching squishy things be made because its fun to watch. We really enjoyed this project because it was very interesting and it challenged us and made us do better.
    • I chose this project because when you cook its really fun to do with your friends. It can also expand your learning about how things are made. A lot of people don't understand how much effort it takes to make a proper YouTube video. We really wanted to expand other peoples horizons too. Our overall purpose of this project was to help people do things that they had no experience in and thats where our videos came in.
    • Katherine Sirich
      Our project is making a professional youtube channel that shows what Michigan is about. Kate and I create small clips one by one and then put them into a montage with music behind it. We go through each clip and each clip shows the nature and freshness of Michigan. We feature many local places such as: School, Birmingham, Cranbrook and more. We will continue to work on this youtube channel throughout the rest of the year.

    • Sirena and Eden ASL
    • Our project is learning American Sign Language. We watch videos on what the signs are and then create videos after we learn new things to show how we are expanding our vocabulary in ASL. We mostly use youtube to find videos for watching. We made out own courses.
    • I chose this project because I have always been fascinated with sign language. Talking through body language to me is very cool. It has expanded my learning by having a new language in my head. Now I can talk to my partner Sirena in sign language and no one knows what we are talking about and that is fun too. My overall purpose of this project was to learn a language that was very fascinating to me and I Had so many questions about. Now I can actually speak it and that makes me happy.
  • Movie Critiquing
    • Our project is watching movies and then creating 3 paragraph long critiques for people to read. We also create a google doc with all of the movies we plan to watch by genre and how popular they are. We chose to do this project because we really enjoy watching movies. We also like giving our opinion for people to read. I have always loved movies and doing this project let me watch my favorite movies and critique them. My favorite genre of movies is horror. We watched a great horror movie from the old days. It is called Nosferatu. This project has opened my mind to movie that aren't just from this century but from centuries before my time. My overall purpose of this project was to expand my learning on movies and give honest critique for people to watch or not watch the movies I recommend.

  • Top Reflections:

  • || 1/14/17 || We will film. || 3 || 3 || We began filming and it was a success. WE had some problems deciding on which clips to use and it was a small hassle but easy to fix. Sirena and I finally decided on clips we both liked or refilmed them and everything was running smoothly. We are sad because we are close to being done with our movie. We dont want to pass the 10 minute mark so people don't get bored watching our movie for the 100th time. We plan on finishing filming next Thursday or maybe even the following Tuesday and all the classes after that we will work on our project page. ||

    • I choose this reflection because it was near the end of our movie. WE were many problems and in the end we fixed everything so this reflection shows our trial and error. Also it explains how we worked together and didn't give up.I choose to highlight this reflection because it showed us working together. Also it shows how we put thought into our movie and worked extremely hard.

    • I choose this reflection because it shows how hard kate and i were working. There were many problems with the weather and finding good music that is appropriate for school. It shows struggle and then relief.

    • Today we finished adding different cooking videos to our Youtube video. I learned that when we set our minds to something were able to do it way better. I learned that learning to use the cable cord and i photo helps a lot with our project. Cable cords can get lost very easily. I enjoy using tech because i understand.

    • I chose this reflection because i feel like it explains how we started to get better in one project. We struggled in the beginning with trying to make our photos and videos convert to the computer but we figured it out soon enough. I photo was also really helpful in this process of converting
    • Our projects look so good and they all are on key and in beat and kate and i are very proud. The only thing we have to do now is make a few more videos. The trailer will show what we did in the process. This is needed so people can see how we created our project/the process. If we don't do this we won't get credit. We are now filming a new video ( School 2)
  • I picked this reflection because it shows how hard me and kate are working. We've had so much trial and error and in this reflection it says that we are proud and being proud is very important when you are doing something that you care about. This project has been so much fun and a blast to do and I've executed this in my reflection.

    • How is our project going?
  • I think that our project is doing very well. Individually we have made tons of bracelets at home and now we have started to manufacture friendship bracelets with the help of our friends. People seem to want the friendship bracelets lately but the bead bracelets are still #1. We have not made many orders yet so we will have to work on those if we want to stay on top of everything. We have not made any money yet, this is because we are not charging anyone for them yet.
    • I chose this reflection because I feel like it shows my work ethic and also explains how hard I was working, I feel it also shows how enjoyable this project is for me and that I would definitely do this again as a challenge in the future.
    • We Think:
      Well we have learned a ton of phrases in sign and we also are very interested in it so it makes it fun for us. We seem to be finding a lot of courses on youtube which is good but we cannot find a solid course so we are going to make our own course outline and learn as we go. WE want to speak fluently very soon but its difficult to find a good source. WE also have to film our video by the person who is helping us.
    • I chose this reflection because I felt it showed how I was working towards my goal. It is also a very positive reflection. To me this is one of the best reflections that showed how good I was doing in that time period.
  • Top Critiques:

  • How do you think you will finish your Stadium and stadium seats in this marking period? I feel like you won't have enough time to succeed but good project overall!I chose this critique I gave because i feel like my critique was a bit harsh but it made them get the work done. I felt that that weren't going to be able to finish there project in time. They are now very far in there project and i feel like i helped a little bit along the way

  • I think your project is going well except i don't feel your doing enough. Im not experienced in highlight videos so i would not know. And make sure your music fits with the highlight it would make the video way better!
  • I gave them this critique because i felt they weren't doing enough with the highlight videos and that they should add way more. When they add sound effects to there video its way better. This is my opinion.

  • Nice job perry! I thought your project was a success and that your project is helping people in chess. I recommend you make the audio more clear so you can understand better.
  • I chose this critique because it says helpful things and critiques him in a non-aggressive way. I said the good parts of his project and the things i thought that he should work on.

You have a great idea for a project but you could try to present your project with a little more excitement next time.
I chose this reflection because the person was being honest and I do feel like I need more excitement when I present.
