The first reason why the first week of media went well was because the morning announcements broadcast operated well. Unlike last year, advisory is in the morning. Yep, that's right, the schedule changed back to how it was when I was in sixth grade. Since we didn't have our weekly teams formed yet, our broadcast team consisted of all eighth grade returning students. Granted, it is expected to go well being that most of us are 3 year students. I was the director for the week, so I had to tell my teammates when to switch, fade on the titles, etc. For the whole week, the broadcast was good. We got to practice a bunch of times which was essential since "Practice makes Perfect". Now that advisory was in the morning, I think it changed the mindset of the team to focus more. Last year since advisory was in the middle of the school day, people could just say "Oh, let's just come in for recess and practice." But now because of the schedule change, I think it'll help the broadcast team stay on track and not mess about. That was one reason why I thought my first week of media went well.
Another reason why the first week of media went well was because my partner Kirra and I have our topics for our 1st quarter projects selected. Unfortunately, Kirra was sick for the first week of school, so she wasn't here for our pitch party. Basically, a pitch party is where the whole class 'pitches' or throws out their idea and Mr. M gives us feedback. On the behalf of the both of us, I pitched out a feature story on an inspiring man named Moses Hamilton. After Moses got into a car accident in 2002, he became a quadriplegic, someone who is paralyzed in the arms and legs. While he was in the hospital, he learned how to paint with his mouth! He is now a very successful artist of his business, "MosArt". If you're interested in learning more about our project, click here to read our TIAS. Anyways, we have our topic set, and now it is time to get started! It'll be a long, stressful process but the end result is definitely worth it. Kirra and I just have to make sure that we stay ahead of the game, and not procrastinate! Last week went well because my partner and I have our topics set.
The next reason why the first week of media went well was because I got to meet all the new students and see my friends again! I missed everyone during the summer and it was very nice to see everyone again. It was also really great to meet the new students! They all seem nice and I'm excited to be spending this year with them. I'm really terrible at names at first, so I apologize in advance! But don't worry, I promise I'll get them down! Please don't be afraid to ask me questions! I am happy to help! I really like how this year we have lots of bonding activities. I think it's an awesome idea! This media class made me discover the great people I am proud to call my friends today. We're all a family here, so I hope we can all get along! The first week of media went well because I got to see my friends again and meet the new students!
Overall, the first week of media for me was good for three reasons, the morning announcements broadcast went well, Kirra and I have our first quarter project idea set, and I got to see all my friends and meet the new students of our class! Sadly this will be my final year in CKTV, so I'm going to try to do my best work! I hope that this year will be full of success and lessons for all of us! Let's make this year a great one everyone! Well, that will be it for this week's constructed response! Thank you so much for reading! Bye!
