Student Mockumentaries: A Glimpse of 2006

In preparation for reading Fahrenheit 451, Kristin's sophomores each created a "mockumentary" - where they examined something in the past, present and (predicted) future. After writing their essay, they then created a digital story - including narration. Kristin has posted three of them on her class blog:
The year: 2026

The task: To document a history

The mission: To analyze the nature of "progress"

The results: Some visions are encouraging, some are darkly perturbing, but all are possible.

The question: Which of these will come true?
All three are worth watching, but I especially liked Alyssa B.'s. Please head over to the blog and let the students (and Kristin) know what you think.
