Each Friday morning, my classes spend 10-15 minutes at the beginning of class watching “Around the Mountain,” a student-produced weekly video program about our school. Each segment includes news, interviews, humorous segments, and student spotlights. I am always astounded by how creative students are, and it’s great fun for me because about half the kids on the KMTV staff are in my AP English class. Under the direction of Jackie Collier, an inspirational teacher, our students produce work that is comparable to work usually found in small colleges.
If you are interested, take a look at Friday’s program. Last week, I wrote about our Valentine Dance for Special Needs students. The segment on the dance can be found on this video a little beyond the 9 minute mark.
