My name is Louis Muriente. Some of the returning students may already know me from the assistance I did with the school last year. I take it as a privilege to return to M.S.890 this school year as one of your child's teachers. I will be working with students this year for Blended Learning, offering academic support services in ELA, and with those that are in seventh grade Film Production Spark. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns at LMuriente@ms890.org
For Blended Learning, students will use technology to support the skills they are learning in their core content classes. Throughout the year students will use online educational tools such as Achieve 3000 and Mathletics. These websites differentiate instruction and allow students to learn at their own pace supporting the skills being used in their content classrooms.

To start the year in Film Spark, we will have a short unit about Film history. To become better filmmakers, we have to understand the advancements that came before us. After learning about the history of Film, students will complete a project where they create a poster about their favorite films persuading their audience as to why they should watch that particular film. The website will provided further details as we move into each project but we will also perform these activities during the year:
-Visitors who are currently working in the production industry -Trips to Production companies -Student-made films as we learn the equipment
I look forward to the year in Spark and the incredible stories that these students will make. I look forward to also having possible film screenings where students get to show their work to their classmates, and hopefully the parents as well.
Choose an idea from the list below that you will turn into a short film that represents the meaning of that word.
Ideas include: -Bullying -Building Community -Kindness -Multiculturalism -Growing Up -Resiliency -Responsibility
2. Once you have your issue, think of how that issue can be turned into a theme(central message) for your script. *For example, if my issue is “Aging” then a possible theme for my script might be “Aging means that people lose the independence they once had”
3. You will create a story that represents your central issue. Your story should include at least 3 scenes that represent a beginning, middle, and ending for your story. The scenes that you create should represent the central message and give your viewers something to think about the issue.
4. Create a script thinking about the audio and video that we will see in each scene. Your Film will include:
A script using our script template to write your story.
At least 2 main characters to include in the story.
Create props or costumes to film.
A variety of film shots.
Important Dates: What is Due: 1/25/19: Completed Scene 1 filmed 2/1/19: Completed Scene 2 filmed 2/15/19: Completed Scene 3 filmed 3/5/19? : Final Edited version
These services will take place in both a push-in and pull-out setting. I will work closely with your child's core subject teachers to ensure they are not penalized for any work they may miss when they are pulled out of the classroom.
