SUMMER ASSIGNMENT 2015

  1. Take pictures over the summer.  Your first project (due September 14, 2015) is a short video introducing yourself to the class.  Length – 2-3 Minutes.
    1. Use Windows Movie Maker (or similar application) to put your photos to a song.
    2. Your name should appear in the opening.
    3. Include a quote that is inspirational to you.
    4. The closing credits should include your name as well as the name and artist of the song.
  2. Join “Mrs. Miranda’s Class Page” on Facebook.
  3. Problem solvers – There’s a problem.  It sucks.  Don’t just say, “Oh, well.”  Say, “How can I fix it?”
    1. Identify THREE circumstances/problems/issues that you feel need to have a solution or be improved upon.  For example, the vending machine always seems to rejects your coins.
    2. Research how it currently works or is the way it is.  For example, vending machines determine the value of the coin by the size and shape. (2 pages minimum double-spaced).
    3. Come up “with a better way”.  How would you improve the system?  Your proposed solution must be grounded in reality. (1 page minimum double-spaced).  For example, people and animals can identify things by sound, if a vending machine could do that, it might not reject the coins as often.
