I haven’t presented my Capstone to the school, or all the parents yet, but I did present my video to my class.
When I presented to the class it looked pretty good, but I do have to make a few more changes to my script, which means that I have to re-record my entire video! That is the annoying part of doing WeVideo. You may have to re-record a lot, and make lots of changes with the recordings.
Everybody is going to present their presentations to the parents this Friday, and I am very excited that the parents will even get to see my presentation. I hope that people are interested in my topic, and I think people will be interested in it, because fashion is a pretty common thing people like to learn about.
I think that the best part of Capstone was probably researching, because I got to learn so much more about women’s fashion, that I didn’t know about.
I hope you enjoyed this blog post!
I just finished my WeVideo for Capstone! I have worked on this video for weeks, and I am super happy I am finally finished with it.
Instead of recording my voice for each little clip, I recorded my voice in one. I had to re-record my voice so many times! I would make one small mistake, and then I would have to redo the entire thing! It got really annoying, but I have to admit, it was so worth it in the end when everything is all put together. Also a few weeks ago when I did one voice recording I messed up a lot, but still put it in. I also set up all my pictures with that recording. But today I re-recorded, and it sounds much better, and it wasn’t as hard to put in the pictures and everything, because all of my pictures were already uploaded.
Everybody in our grade will be presenting their Capstone to the school, and the parents. This means that the dead line is Friday. And so if I ever need to make adjustments to my video I still have some time, but the dead line is very soon.
I hope you enjoyed my blog post, if you did, come and check it out some other time!
Today in my Capstone blog post I will be talking more about my site visit. And incase you didn’t already know, I went to the MetroPolitan Museum Of Arts, as my site visit.
In the museum there was an entire section just about the camp of fashion! When I say camp, I don’t mean summer camp… Camp means something a little bit crazy, and exciting! But I didn’t know this before we went. I thought it would literally be the evolution of fashion, but I was wrong. It was actually the camp of fashion. The camp of fashion means something sort of like crazy.
I learned a lot about camp fashion! For example I learned that when you dress camp you pop out and wear a kind of crazy outfit. I also learned that camp outfits can be made of all different types of materials, some of the outfits there weren’t even made out of fabric! For example there were outfits made out of money, like coins, and dollar bills!
I haven’t got my interview with Pam Hocstin yet, but I will be doing it soon.
Thanks for checking out my blog!
If you haven’t already read my other capstone blog posts, I recommend doing that so you know where I left off, and you know what Capstone is. But anyways, today I’ll be talking about where I’m at with Capstone.
I have been doing a lot of research lately. Personally I think my topic is easier to research on then others, because there are so many website and books about fashion throughout the years. I have made a mini booklet and that’s where I put all my research. This booklet also lets me keep all my work super organized. It helps keep it organized, because I can make a small section for each of my sub questions. And I have more than enough paper in my booklet.
The next step in my Capstone project is my interview, and site visit. For me finding this was easy because there are so many people who love fashion, and know a lot about it. And also for my site visit that was fairly simple to, because there are plenty of museums, and more than enough stores that I could go to. The person I will be interviewing is named Pam Hochstin. For my site visit I will be visiting the MetroPolitan Museum of art, because they recently opened a fashion exhibit.
Anyways I hope you enjoyed reading this post. Hope you come join me in my next post!
As you might’ve known from my last blog post, I’m doing a project called, Capstone. In case you don’t know what Capstone is then let me explain. Capstone is this huge project, and you can choose any topic you want to research on. Now that you have had that small recap, I’m going to update you on what I have been doing.
My original topic was, how fashion has changed throughout the century. But then I thought to myself, it needs to sound fancier, because then more people will be interested in it… And then it hit me! The evolution of fashion! It is technically the same thing, but it just sounds fancier, and cooler.
After I did that I had to make a graphic organizer with my main inquiry question, and sub questions. This was pretty hard. I found this hard because I was having trouble with making them related to my main inquiry questions.
Capstone will definitely be a complicated project, but in the end it will be 100% worth it! Hope you tune in on my capstone #3!
If you saw my last blog post on my immigration project, you would know what it’s all about, and were I’m at with it. But if you haven’t read my last posts i’ll update you, I interviewed my babysitter named Edith, I had to make a slideshow, how to plan it out, and some more stuff that’s not that important….
Ok, so last time I talked about what I found simple, and what I found difficult, and I also mentioned that my next step was to make a slideshow on this immigration project. I have completed the slide show today, and I’m very proud of it… The reasons I’m proud of it is because, one, it took me a super long time not just to make, but plan it to. I had to plan it by making charts and on the tops it said something like, slide number, what your going to say, and picture. And believe me… That took a very long time!
After I planned out my slide show, it was actually time to put it all together. It was pretty complicated to put together. Let me explain, I had to make a cover, and it had to look amazing, but it’s also required to make the slideshow four minutes. And believe me… It’s hard… But I’m almost there, I’m currently at three minutes, forty five seconds. I only need fifteen more seconds, and then I’m DONE. But from what I have in my video, I think it looks great, and I know for a fact that in the end, all my hard work will pay off!
Overall this project has been GREAT! And I really enjoyed the experience, and I hope to do another project using Spark Video, because it’s a really fun website/app to use, and play around with! BYE!
As you might’ve known from my last blog posts, I have an immigration project and I’m interviewing my babysitter, Edith, and she’s from Mexico. Now that you’ve had that tiny little recap, let’s get down to business…
Since I already interviewed her, it’s time to talk about the challenging things I faced, the things I found easy, and some more!
Let’s start with things that I found hard/challenging… Well I don’t think you know this, but I also have to make a video, about the project, and what’s hard about this is writing the script. You might be thinking, it’s just a script it’s the easiest thing ever! But your wrong. Your very… Very… Wrong… It took me about a bajillion hours! Ok, that’s an exaggeration… It really only took me and hour and thirty minutes. But as long as it’s a great script, it’s worth it. Anyways, what’s also hard is the video itself. For example, it has to be four minutes, and it’s hard to make each slide exactly how I want it.
Ok, enough complaining! Now let’s talk about the things I found fairly simple! Well what I find pretty simple is actually writing these blog posts. I know… I know… Your probably thinking, if it’s hard to write a script, then how is it not hard to write a blog post? Well that’s a question I don’t have an answer to… But anyways, I found interviewing Edith was also pretty easy.
Anyways hope you enjoyed my post! If you did come check it out next time, BYE!
As you might’ve remembered, last time I was here with you, we discussed things like, the person I’m interviewing, some questions, and a couple more things.
I interviewed Edith a few days ago. And as I said in the other post, she has trouble speaking English sometimes. So when I interviewed her, she was stumbling over lots of words. I can’t think of any words from the top of my head, but I had to help her a lot. Also, because of this, when she was answering questions, she wasn’t that descriptive, but we made it work. But also, when I asked her even my most open ended questions, she wasn’t even that open ended! She would also go into topics that weren’t even close to related to the question!
Overall the interview went great! I really enjoyed working with her. My babysitter and I are really close, she’s been babysitting me since I was two. But what I’m trying to say is that, I know A LOT about her, but she was saying things that barely anyone knew about her, which I really enjoyed.
I’m excited to keep going with this project! And tune in for the next post! BYE!
So far, the immigration project has been going pretty well… I haven’t done much yet, but so far I got somebody to interview, and wrote some questions for them to answer.
To be honest, finding somebody was pretty hard. I asked both my parents if they knew anybody who immigrated to America. They each said no, and I thought I was doomed, and not going to be able to do the project. The next day I came to school, and I told all my friends about the project, and asked if they knew anybody I could interview. Surprisingly, there were a lot of them who said yes, and some of them were immigrants them selves! One of my friends said there babysitter was an immigrant, and that’s when it came to me… My babysitter!!! I totally forgot, she’s from Mexico. So as you can tell, I’m connected to this person because she’s my babysitter.
The person I’m interviewing is named Edith. She is from Mexico, but immigrated to America. She speaks Spanish, and English. She speaks very good English, but sometimes she can’t pronounce certain words like, ” throat” and other things. She still speaks a lot of Spanish. She speaks Spanish with her family, lots of friends, over the phone, and sometime’s when she is calling a doctor or something, she requests for a translator who speaks Spanish. someone who can speak Spanish.
I’m asking her questions I think she’ll be able to answer… For example a few questions I’m asking her is,”Why did you, and your family decide to leave?” Or, “If you still lived in Mexico what do you think it would be like now? And why?” Simple questions like that.
Anyway, hope you enjoyed my first immigration blog post. Until next time, bye!
