Students are to use www.google.com to find images that represent each of the frames in the list. They are to save the images to a folder they have created on the network.

They are also to find a song that is acceptable and represents who they are and add the audio file to their project.

The project, before it is made into a movie, must be timed with the audio file. They must include build and transition between slides. Once they have completed the project, they can make it into a movie.

Students must present their movie to the class and fellow students will review each one.

If the student is a senior and successful at the completion of the assignment, I would burn a copy of it for them to keep and use at home. They could upload this as a live resume on their facebook or myspace. It's about your image and the impressions you make.
