I'm on the news!

Follow the link to see me being interviewed, with one of my students about our documentary! As a HUGE collaborative project between our school library, our entire 5th grade, our school band, our local historical society, the Old Stone Fort library and museum in Schoharie- we produced a documentary called "The Battle of Cobleskill 1778". We created a primary source based documentary with living history reinactments. Our students researched in the Stone Fort Library, wrote the storyboard and script, made the maps, played the music for the soundtrack, learned about geneology and the daugthers of the american revolution, became actors, learned about film composition.... oh and had fun yelling "quiet on the set" :) We premiered it at our 5th grade banquet for all the students and their parents, then had a special showing for the whole school plus the Richmondville, Cobleskill and Schoharie Historical Societies. We even got a plaque from the Schoharie Historical Society. Woohoo!
