School Media Spotlight

Recently, 8th grade students at Durant Road Middle school completed an enrichment project in which they conducted an oral history interview with a family member, wrote a unique focus question inspired by their interest in their own family history, explored primary and secondary source documents to gather information and images supporting that focus, and culminated their results using an online tool that best expresses their findings to others. 

The project was the result of collaboration between the media specialist Ms. Ziller and social studies teacher Ms. Richardson at DRMS. Students demonstrated competence with a variety of presentation tools such as Animoto, Haiku Deck, and Glogster while they gained valuable experience speaking in front of a crowd. Going forward, all student work will be published in an iBook.
