2009-2010 Documentary Websites
by 1st Year Students

For this 3rd Junior project, students chose their own Documentary topic and our goal was to integrate work done in all classes to produce work around their chosen Documentary topic. In English Class, students interviewed their documentary subjects 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 Design/Graphics Class. In Web Production / Audio Engineering class, students edited together their various audio interviews, narration, sound effects and music in Apple GarageBand to produce an AudioPhoto Documentary. They also used Adobe Dreamweaver together with Cascading Style Sheets and javascripts to format and design their Documentary Website which showcases their Research Paper, AudioPhoto Documentary and Photo Documentary Book.
