Each IMPACT course builds on the skills and practices learned in the previous course. In the initial pathway year, all students in grades 9-12 are enrolled in Contemporary Media (A-G & CTE approved). Contemporary Media projects and challenges range in complexity based on student needs and abilities.
IMPACT students are consistently involved in multiple projects/roles simultaneously. Below are a few of the projects we're currently working on. Past projects can be viewed here.
Leadership and Teamwork 9.2, 9.7; Technical Knowledge and Skills 10.2, 10.3; Demonstration and Application 11.5
AME Pathway Standards A2, A8.1-8.7
Working in groups of 3-4, students write and produce a scene of dialogue shot from multiple angles with a single camera (master shot, over the shoulder 1, over the shoulder 2, close up 1, and close up 2). The scene must also include at least one action cut involving a prop.
The purpose of this project is to build skills in shooting for coverage and postproduction. Once students complete a script and storyboard, they will film their scene in multiple takes from all five angles, managing their time effectively.
