    Video Production Syllabus 2018-2019


    Coach Brooke



    Purpose: This course covers the basic and advanced concepts of modern media. Students will research and discuss current events covered in the newspaper internet, radio, and television. The main focus will be on the creation of their own media through movies. Students will learn how to create educational and current event movies. This course will also allow for the integration of video editing software and other technology into other classes.


    Goals/Objectives: To teach students how to write for print, take videos, edit video footage for broadcast, as well as to help students become familiar with technology.


    Grading: Students will receive daily participation grades that will reflect their professionalism in class, working with their peers, and completing assigned tasks. This will be 80% of their grade for the class.


    The remaining 20% of the student’s grade will come from projects that will be done each quarter as well as tests.


    Classroom Discipline: Our class will develop a social contract that will govern the classroom. The contract will include how students should act in class, how they would like to be treated by the teacher and their peers, as well as what will happen if they break the rules of the contract.


    Students are expected to act as professionals in class each day. This means they are paying attention, working on their tasks and assignments, and following the rules of the social contract.


    If a student is not acting professionally in class they will have of the following happen:


    1. First offense: Warning from teacher about their behavior

    2. Second offense: Time out from activity and discussion with the teacher about their behaviors.

    3. Third offense: Removal from activity and given alternate assignment to work on.

    4. Fourth offense: Removal from class, sent to office and call home to parent.
