Your Year in Reflection is a 10th grade project that helps us appreciate the power of reflection, though it can be made in any grade level. Students will create a video time capsule of their year after considering the year’s events with a personal, local, national, and global lens. Working in groups, they will choose one theme to leave in the past and another theme to propel us into a better future. Students will create an advertisement which symbolizes their video’s themes and include a link to their shared video.
Final Products: 2-minute video time capsule and “movie poster” advertising the video
Key Academic Skills and Content: Synthesize event topics and group members’ feelings into thematic ideas, Collaboration for curation, creation, revision processes, Share research and ideas in a group
