While working on our final project we had lots of ups and downs. This blog post is about them.
First, let’s talk about the first step. Picking an Ignite or a TED Talk. At first I wasn’t sure what to do because I wanted mine to be easy like an Ignite but also I wanted to control it more like a TED Talk. Eventually I chose a TED Talk because I had more to write and I liked the control better.
After we had chosen whether are presentation is a Ignite or TED Talk we had to write our script. This was hard because at first my script was only 2 minutes and it needed to be at least 3. I started adding a lot but it still wasn’t 3 minutes. Eventually after a lot of editing I made it a bit over 3 minutes. This process was hard because we had little time but a lot of work.
Then we had to make the slide show. This was quite easy because all we had to do was find pictures that match our slides. I think this was one of the easiest parts of the process.
Finally on to the practicing. I found this hard because I am not very good at memorizing. Eventually after along time I memorized it. We also had to perform in front of the class for practice. On the first time I was really nervous because I was worried I might forget something but on the second time I wasn’t nervous at all.
I think this was a really cool capstone experience. I can’t wait to perform in front of our parents.
