Guide to check Ideal Society Media project, Girl Rising, and winding down for the holidays

The Media project is due this Friday.  This illustration/note was another attempt to help guide the students through the process for this project.  This is my way of being explicit about the project.  A few students have come forward with rough drafts to share with me so I may provide them feedback before the assignment is marked.  I have been very generous with class time for the students to complete this project

A lot of students may want to rush to complete the assignment without paying attention to the demands of the project.  Pay attention and put in the extra effort to make sure you are on the right track.

Yesterday, Room 52 played host to a screening of Girl Rising, which is a part of the Hot Docs in school education program.  Hot Docs is an international film festival that takes place in Toronto every Spring.  During the year, they are busy screening documentaries at the Bloor Cinema and developing educational outreach programs for schools.  I feel very fortunate to be a part of this outreach for the third straight year.
