The Media Spot is working with 5th grade students at PS 682, The Academy of Talented Scholars (TAOTS), to produce a collection of short documentaries that tell the history, share the curriculum, and capture the school experience from the students perspective. The latest installement in this process was carried out as an Enrichment Cluster* titled Document This!
Rhys Daunic of The Media Spot, worked with Diana Natanilov and Tatyana Sumner at TAOTS to design a ten-session program that would introduce students to documentary filmmaking, and have them create short documentary clips covering other student Enrichment Clusters. Watch the Document This! Process Video under Related Videos to see the process as well as the student films.
* TAOTS Enrichment Clusters are cyclical class offerings that allow students to self-select project-based explorations based on their interests.
