You know that Watership Down video I said I'd be making a while ago, well I made one (for my ELA Lit class) and I thought I'd share it with you guys. Here's the link.

I liked your review and it made me want to read (again) the book or watch (again) the movie. :)

You made this for your ELA Lit class? How was it received?

The class loved it, and my teacher loved it. I got a 25/30 on my presentation.

Did you use green screen for the parts when you are standing in front of the book covers?  I can't how else you pulled that off. :)

Analysis is good--you know how I am about the curse words--I think its unnecessary to prove a point.  Otherwise, I can see why you did well on the project.  What did your professor say about the project?  Curious minds want to know. :)

She asked if I did videos like this before, and that she'd definately check them out. Onj the paper I got back she said I could have done without te swearing, but I put that in there to make the class laugh. Which they did.

There was this joke I did where I just show a slide with the title of the book, just the title and nothing else. I asked the class if they've heard of the book. None of them did. And I asked them what they thought it was about. Most said a sinking ship. Then I showed them a picture of a rabbit. They all started giggling and going like "What?"

Overall I'm pretty proud of this one.

I don't think they'll forget about the student that analyzed a book about rabbits. ;)  I suppose as long as they liked it its a good thing...plus maybe one will actually read it.
