Hello friends, Jude again. PLP projects pass and months pass, but there is something special with the last humanities project we had “project podcast”. Not only is it the first mid-covid, adjusted school project, but it’s also the first grade 10 PLP project and the first project in the audio medium.
In this project, we learnt about podcasts and how to make a podcast trailer, and we learned about identity.
The driving question in this project was How Might I Create A Trailer For My Podcast Which Informs, Inspires, And Entertains??
So, now with this project and its information in mind, let’s dive into the topic…….
A major part of the project was an exploration of identity and what it means. We started by independently defining identity as how we believe it I wrote:
What defines you as a person and how you will be remembered. An expression of how you are (beliefs, values, what you like/don’t like, culture, history ), and what defines you as a person and how you will be remembered. Your background plays a role in who your identity is.
Alongside our definitions of it, we also explored our own identity by creating bio-poems and mask illustrations of our identity. We ended our discussions of this by creating a formative blog post about identity. With this blog post, we had to create a gif of a double-exposed image and representations of our identity. You can view that blog post here. So now I want to end this section by discussing the competencies we had to show for this milestone.
I used technology to communicate and create by creating and honing down a good podcast trailer by communicating and learning what makes a podcast and a trailer good.
welp, that’s all I have to say about this project. Cya!
