One Teacher's Plans for our Annual January Term
Don Brensinger, one of our middle school teachers, has been looking forward to our annual J-Term experience for months. J-Term is designed to increase learning opportunities for students and is an integral part of the academic calendar. While J-Term is a fun and adventurous time, it also aims to teach valuable lessons that can be carried on in life. Don is teaching three of the many classes offered following winter break.
One of the classes Mr. Brensinger is teaching is Intro to Stop Motion. In it, students will learn what it takes to create a stop-motion video and learn valuable life lessons along the way. He is hoping this class will teach camera operation, editing skills, and patience while also providing an opportunity to give the students an avenue to express their God-given creativity.
The second class he is offering is a Trick Shot class. Inspired by Dude Perfect, this class will challenge students to create the craziest trick shot video. Students will work in teams, learning teamwork, to craft a video worthy of going viral. Building video and editing skills, learning patience and perseverance, and learning a bit about physics and awareness is all part of this entertaining class.
The final class Don is teaching is Watching in His Truth. This class will equip students with the knowledge and understanding to filter messages in media using a biblical lens. Discernment and critical thinking will be taught as students watch movies and identify messages the author is attempting to share. Messages from media are constantly influencing our lives, especially through social media, and this class will show how we determine whether those messages fit with biblical principles.
Mr. Brensinger is excited to have the opportunity to connect with the students and build relationships, all while teaching valuable skills. His classes are just three of many conducted over the next few weeks by our talented teaching staff. Connect with our Facebook and Instagram feeds to follow more stories about our J-Term experience.
