2006-2007 Documentary Books, Films, & Websites

For this 4th project, most of our students paired up with another student and chose their own Documentary topic. Our goal was to integrate work done in all classes to produce work around their chosen Documentary topic.


In Mr. Jack's English Class, students interviewed their documentary subjects with M-Audio MicroTrack portable digital recorders and intertwined their interview transcripts with additional research to write a Research Paper. During the process of interviewing their subjects, students took photos, used found photos and combined their audio interview transcript, research paper and quotes into a printed Photo Documentary Book with the use of Adobe InDesign in Ms. Pedinotti's Design/Graphics Class. Mr. Florendo's Web Production / Audio Engineering students edited together their various audio interviews, narration, sound effects and music in Apple GarageBand to produce an 8-16 minute Audio Documentary. They also used Adobe Dreamweaver together with Cascading Style Sheets to format and design their Documentary Website which showcases their Research Paper, Audio Documentary and Photo Documentary Book. Ms. Kefauver's Film students combined their research paper, photos, found photos and film footage into an 8-16 minute Documentary Film using Apple Final Cut Pro.
