Hazel's 2 Minutes to Make a Difference Reflection

Google Doc:

Version 1:

Final Draft:

2. Some changes we made to the first draft was we added more pictures and we shortened the time length of some slides. Another change we made was, we put where the money we raised was donated to. We also made some spelling and grammar changes.

3. Rebecca Irving is the name of our expert. She is from MCIC, Manitoba Council for International Cooperation. I sent her an email talking about our 2 minutes project. Then we asked her information about their organization and what they do to help. She mentioned fair trade. After, we had an interview with her and we learned a lot from it. Some information she gave us were: "when children are forced to work they can't go to school. Physically and mental effects being that they worked under very hazardous and dangerous conditions." She also defined what child labour is "forced labour under hazardous conditions where they don't have a voice and they don't have any of the comforts and amenities we would like to think a child has." Lastly, she told us about Fair Trade "Made under conditions and with people that are not children, and that they had good working conditions and they were safe. If they felt unsafe their voice was actually heard."

5. I think our greatest success in this movie is the expert part and the music. We had a lot of evidence when it came to the interview and we changed the mood of the music when it came to the making a difference part. The skills I will take with me is gathering information and pictures then turning it into a movie. Another thing would be adding music and other audio to a video/movie.

6. What frustrated me during the movie making process was putting the information together with a clear message, to make a difference! We didn't have enough pictures at first so had to search for more. At first, I was worried that the length of the video would be too short but it was okay in the end.

7. The 2 Minutes project is important to Grade 8 Students because it gives us a chance to show that we care. It got us to think outside the box and come up with a way to make a difference. This project also teaches a lesson, even the simplest actions can make a huge difference in another person's life.

8. I will make a difference in the future by paying more attention to what is happening in the world and find ways to make a difference. I will also donate food, clothing and money to a charity in the future.
