The first week of media has been an eventful one. First, I will tell you about my partner and what we are planning on doing. Second I will tell you my story idea and where I am on that. Finally I will tell you the little things that I have done in the first week.
I once had a partner, I say once because my partner had decided to quit. What we are planning on doing about this is to first find me a new partner, but they declined the offer of joining media. Now I have no partner to work with. I am fine with that because I think that I am best at news stories, and I have even done one by myself before, I have also probably in at least the top 5 in the class for doing the most news stories. I have done around 15-20 news stories, I think I can get this one done. The real problem is the Inside Scoop, those require two people. Now I will need to borrow another student from another group to help me with those.
For this quarter's news story, I am planning on doing it on Tanner McDaniel. He is a 16 year old boy who loves to bodyboard, much more than others his age. He loves it so much, he is a professional. Although, since I am by myself, I will either join with another group, making a group of 3, but then there is not enough work for everyone, so we might do 2 stories in one quarter. If I don't go with another group, I can either do my story myself or do a story for the Kauai Visitors Bureau where every school on the island takes a letter from the word Aloha and a video would be made from that, but there might not be enough schools on the island willing to do it.
Some of the smaller things that happened were that all the 8th graders had to work the morning announcements and teach the new students at the same time. Another is that we all got our partners. We also discussed our topics for the 1st quarter. We all also helped the new students make blog sites which I did but we did not finish it.
Overall, the first week of media has been packed full of events. Well, I would like to know what you all think what I should do for my first quarter. Check back soon for my next blog!
I am in 8th grade in my school's Advanced Media class. I love this class and I have been having lots of fun in it. This past year we went to San Diego, where STN was held, and the year before it was in Orlando. This year it was in Atlanta, Georgia.
