My capstone project is a book club targeted at 2nd–8th graders. I targeted, younger kids because I wanted them to develop better reading habits. My first meeting was very cool and subtle; we introduced ourselves and did icebreakers. Then they filled a survey out with books they are interested in and the genres they are interested in. I did the club at the middle school I attended, and the principal helped tremendously. She helped pay for books and helped get students into my club. I learned that younger kids are really difficult to try to help. It was definitely a fun experience, but I would have done a couple things differently if I were to do it again.
We chose air pollution because it’s such a meaningful topic.It has a lot of concerning issues.We used Lorax in our video because we thought it was a better way to bring the video to a different level. We probably could have used our time more wisely, even though I felt like we did well.The most meaningful part of this project was probably the bloopers.Also, like Brandon said, this feels bittersweet because it’s our last project working together.
