    MEDIA TECHNOLOGY 2

    Grade: 11, 12

    Prerequisite: Media Technology 1 with grade of C or higher In this course, students will continue to develop their media production skills by writing, producing, directing, shooting and editing video pieces of increasing complexity. Second-year students will continue to develop expertise with professional digital video cameras and non- linear editing systems. A greater focus will be placed on careers in the visual communications industry. Students will begin to specialize in one particular area of mass communications and media production, developing a final project in this area as well as pursuing professional relationships within the industry. This curriculum, methods, and assessments indicate an increased depth of rigor, complexity, challenges, and creativity beyond the CP level course. This course is designed to accelerate, extend, and deepen the learning opportunities for students exhibiting superior ability. The curriculum places emphasis on critical and analytical thinking, rational decision making, and inductive and deductive reasoning. (Credit: 2)
