CSpan Student Cam Project
In this project students were expected to research their issue, procure interviews with experts on the issue, investigate multiple perspectives on the issue, mix video and sound, and create a documentary to address the prompt. Needless to say, it was a rich 21st century project and experience for our students. We are very proud them for their hard work and for the resiliency they showed under the pressure of deadlines and in the face of the multiple rejections they received for interviews.
While the content of this year's documentaries was quite good covering a wide range of topics, what really blew us away was the quality of the questions our students asked and the impressive number of professional voices they brought into our shared classroom. In completing these documentaries, our students interviewed one US Senator, a CEO of a major Michigan corporation, a Navy General, NASA project managers, a US Congressman, several Michigan congressional leaders, the Mayor of Milan, numerous professors from local universities, teachers, nurses, doctors, lawyers, and even refugees.
