Portfolio Sign Up
The portfolio interview sign up sheets are on the back of the door. First come, first served.
If you need any help, or are unclear about what I am expecting (after reading over the materials that have been provided to you), I am MORE than happy to help you.
Today we need to prepare for the yearbook launch. We will need a theme, posters, and a "whiz bang" idea on how to make this an exciting event at GHSS.
Presentations will go tomorrow for those who still have not provided us with their "Pitch".
We will be finishing our advanced look at Photography today. I have provided this "cheat sheet" to help you keep track of the terms you are expected to know.
The Pitch: The Presentation
As you should be aware, there is a presentation component to the Pitch presentation (it's in your handout package, and we did discuss this in class..)
Over the past six semesters, It has been my experience that the presentation
part of the assignment has been the weakest. Usually, the presentations seem
"rushed", ill-prepared (both in practice and in the use of powerpoint), and unprofessional. Simply put, this is not acceptable.
In preparation for your presentation, and in addition to this excellent article posted on lifehacker I'd like to draw your attention to these two resources:
Work on The Pitch assignment. It is that simple..and you fully understand the time pressure that you are under. I hope you have a plan, a vision, and a method to accomplish that everything that has to be done on time. This is the REAL world.
Points. Now that the yearbook is essentially finished, it is time for you to get back to your projects. Remember, portfolio time is only a few weeks away.
The Pitch: Pt II
Now that we have finished with the preliminaries, you now have six days to complete the biggest most important pitch you will deliver this year. You will need to work effectively as a team to divide up all the major aspects of the project. Remember to keep track of your brainstorming, and to read (and reread) the rubric and expectations for this task.
We will draw today for presentation order.
