Perrysburg High School :: eSomethin' :: 2017-2018
Students have a voice at Perrysburg High School
eSomethin' is responsible for defining and promoting student culture and events in Perrysburg. Our mission is to capture the best of the 2017-2018 school year and make content that is high quality, fair, thoughtful, and entertaining.
WE ARE A CHANGING PROGRAM
Almost everyone in class is new this year. The white section of this graph represents returning members. Blend tradition with new ideas this year.
The bar graph below illustrates the total number of hits to eSomethin.com by school year. The grey section represents last years visits -- almost half of all visits to the site, about 50,000.
More students recognize and regularly visit our site than years past. The site will grow substantially this school year. It's possible that we could exceed 100,000 in a single year.
This class covers many areas of multimedia production. You will develop skills to become a "jack-of-all-trades" in media. One week you might be acting on camera, the next you could be writing notes for a school investigation.
Much of the content of the course is self-guided. You have many options in the type of work you do and the content that you create. We all must work together to create engaging content for Perrysburg High School students and the local community.
Remember, the school community is our audience!
YOU HAVE SAY IN HOW YOU SPEND YOUR TIME IN CLASS
Each quarter of the year you will be given a "menu" of assignments you can complete to earn your grade. To earn an A, you will complete projects using different skills like video editing and writing.
Sometimes, important projects or assignments will need to be completed before taking class time to pursue personal interests. We must communicate with each other to make sure we stay on track.
You are part of a growing program at Perrysburg High School where you will have fun, learn a lot, and make great friends. This class will be what YOU make it.
