Each grade team at PS 682 (K-5, Brooklyn) worked backward from the TMS Media Literacy Target Profile for their graduating 5th graders, by aligning and coordinating all media related practices towards that end.
To commemorate and celebrate their first graduating class, principal Josephine Sportella asked TMS to work with students to create a series of videos to share their memories with the school community, and in the process, create the most authentic archival assessments of the school story.
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!
Students at The Academy of Talented Scholars produced a series of documentary videos collaboratively scripted across 3 classes that share their perspectives on their school. The grade-wide collaborative project began at the end of their 4th-grade year and continued into their 5th.
