During Mr. Stemple’s technology class, fourth graders created original blues poems in the style of American poet and activist, Langston Hughes. After the creative process, using the talents of Mr. Stemple, poems were set to guitar music.

Over the course of the project, students learned about public speaking, how to record video/audio, different types of hardware (including cameras, tripods, cables etc.) and learned about recording software (including iMovie, iPhoto, web tools). Each fourth grade class performed for each other and created the following movies for each class and the world.

Thank you to Mrs. Davis, Mrs. Dwyer and Mr L. Callahan for all their help!
