Sample Family Reunion SONG List-
Dear Parents,

Mr. Peel's project of using H.istory M.usic V.ideos (Humvees) in 6th Grade Social Studies
Class for T.A.G. / Enrichment / Common Time / Extra Credit teaches the student to:

1. Plan out their project well to avoid time consuming mistakes.
Planning a project in teams is part of collaboration.

2. Organize their information well. They learn a lot about linear and non-linear information
strategies. Some things can be added in a non-linear way such as inserting a slide. Some
things need to be correct before the next step, such as spelling. To take a slide with a
misspelled word and correct it after it has been converted into a jpeg and inserted into
Windows Movie Maker means going back several steps to a PPT program to fix it,
then reconverting it to jpeg. Etc.

3. Once in WMM students learn about flow charts or input of slides/information in an orderly way. Adding in transitions and timing to the music means having all the elements needed in order or the project doesn't work right. Taking slides in/out in a non-linear way will throw off the music timing.
4. Using different kinds of equipment and multiple literacies:
words + music + pictures converted to a movie
meets National Education Technology Standards (NETS): #4,#5,and #6.
If you need copies of these, please let me know.
