Each student will compose a soundtrack for a brief (30 seconds to one minute) video clip of his or her choosing, likely from an online video site such as YouTube or Vimeo. In the interest of avoiding legal issues, students should be instructed to choose video material that is not copyrighted.
Each student may use his or her voice, instruments, or a digital medium such as GarageBand to compose the soundtrack. Each student will submit a recording of his or her soundtrack, a file containing the original video (or a link to its online location), and a brief written reflection that describes his or her compositional decision-making and processes.
This item has been voluntarily field-tested by Michigan teachers with a non-representative sample of students.
