TAOTS Student Documentaries!

Students will be highlighting the special, unique and extraordinary features of our beloved school in a partnership with our media literacy coach and school staff. In preparation for this exciting venture, in 2013, 4th grade students began writing personal essays based on the claim: TAOTS is a school unlike any other! They used a graphic organizer to plan and write essays with a thesis, 3 supporting reasons, and a conclusion. They used how/when examples, personal anecdotes, and conclusions that leave the audience thinking. In their 5th Grade Year they are shooting a series of documentaries, event videos and music videos and are going to assemble them all into one long video for their graduation!
