DUE:  drafts are due for your written pieces.

Work: Slideshow with captions due Nov. 10. Bring your finished Soundslides project to me on a thumb drive.

Your slideshow should have:

  • at least 10 photos taken by you (you can have other supplementary photos if your narrative needs it, ie childhood photos, photos of neighborhood 20 years ago etc.
  • at least one scene setter and one close up
  • captions (two sentences — the first describes the scene, the second advances the narrative)
  • title and credits
