While we were in the the middle school and lower school we were not able to have nearly as much freedom as we have now. Most of our classes have some sort of form to them, a system that has been placed by the teachers. English class with Fitz is the most fun class I have ever had. As the year has progressed my work has become significantly stronger and more thorough. I have been able to complete things this year in english that before this year I would have cowered from. I now enjoy writing and reading. I look forward to homework and all of that is because of Fitz's english class. I am only going to speak of one right now and it was a fun one. We made an outstanding trailer that really captures the idea and main events of, All Quiet on the Western Front.
The video that I made along with Jacob Dudley and Patrick Ryan, was awesome. Unlike every other group, our group was able to use an iMovie trailer template. For those of you who don't know what that is, it is a feature on iMovie where you have a set trailer theme and then you insert your own photos and videos. You can customize the music, change the photos, make a cast list and do the credits. While there are many great advantages to using a template, there is also some disadvantages. For example, you have to film about thirty different scenes that each only fill up a few seconds of the video. If it had not been this way, my group and I would have been done a while ago.
I am sad that this project is coming to an end, but at the same time I am very happy that we have finally finished and that our hard work will finally pay off. After a long week of putting in a lot of effort to this project we have finally finished and are all pumped to show the class what we have been doing the past week.
