What are some projects you’ve done that kids enjoyed and got into? We’re studying civil rights before we read To Kill a Mockingbird and aren’t doing essays. Best project ideas?

A DASH project for end of year seniors. Based on the dash on the tombstone between dates of birth and death. We look at it from the standpoint of leaving childhood and entering adulthood. There’s about 4 mini projects attached to that. They choose 1 to share with class (after doing all of them). 4 modes of work (creative poster, written, electronic, etc.)
With lit circles there’s a project we do with talk show and author, talk show with characters, game show for content or theme (presentation format, not just a Kahoot!), emergency room community board with pamphlets for issue.
I like to use PowerPoint and Google Slides as a way to present information rather than a report or essay.

We acted out the courtroom scene from TKM. Another end assignment is to take Atticus’ closing argument and cut it down to the most essential words. First they cut half of the words. Then they cut half of that. Then they cut it down to a tweet. Great way to analyze the text. They then write justification for their cuts.

I have done multi-media research project slideshows based on theme. They have to pick a thematic statement from the book - quotes and characters that match the theme, historical events that support the theme, and current events that fit the theme, as well as other movies, tv shows, books that show the theme.

Looking to pivot my career into project management from property management and current role finance “sales”. I took a project management course back in 2017 in college.

Since I really have no other PM experience, should I post my assignment to my LinkedIn page? Will recruiters actually see the projects that we post?

Videos longer than 15 min get automatically shortened to 15 min on IG Reels! Help!

So, I usually host an IG live session. Typically, it last 45 min.

If I upload directly after recording the live, then the full 45 min is uploaded in 1080 x 1920 format. Besides missing a cover image, it’s fine. But, in most cases, I need to re-upload the 45 min video once I edit it (remove slurs, etc.)

However, when I upload my edited 45 video, it automatically gets cut to 15 min.

I found little workaround…
