One thing that I will remember from this project 10 years from now would be the adventure I had trying to get footage. This experience includes both before spring break and during the break. The first endeavor I went through before spring break was trying to practice underwater videography. I became that person that brings a GoPro the the local pool. I got a lot of footage of my goofy sister and her friend at the pool. Next, I spent a day at the La Jolla tide pools with my family. Everyone besides my brother and dad got wet feet. My mom, sister, and I all slipped and stepped in some tide pools. We had a great time walking together. Later, because of my camera, I got to show some video to my cousin, her kids, my aunt, my uncle, and my friends here in Durango.
I think schools across America should have 20% projects depending on the class in which the 20% project would be used. This project would be fantastic in an art or humanities class, but I feel it would not be beneficial in a foreign language, math, or science. In art exploring what interests us is how we create meaningful pieces. In humanities the project ties into modern world issues that we care about. However, this would be a hard project to accomplish learning a language through. Similarly it would be difficult to learn math concepts if students focus on just one aspect that interests them. Again one would not be able to learn the variety of concepts that the course should include.
