This project helped me understand what I will need to look at and use in order to complete my project to its fullest extent. I will use my independent portion of the resources to create the story itself and use the collaboration aspect of my resources to polish, edit, and perfect my project. This will allow me to achieve what my goal is, in creating a simple, easy to understand, children's book about baseball with an audio recording.
I felt that besides creating my actual finished product, this part was one of the hardest and most challenging. This section forced me to go out and set my own deadlines which in my recent memory, was the first project where I was put in that responsibility. After reviewing my worksheet for the project I was able to see that this was not something I would leave to the last minute like most projects. After going over my answers, I feel that not all deadlines will be met on the dates that I had put down. Some tasks I may finish before, and some I may need more time. I felt that when establishing those dates I had to take into account the room, and room for other tasks/activities/events outside of my PIP that I may be faced with throughout the year.
Ready Set Pitch!
What I wanted to do was to create a story that I felt was something that not only I could have enjoyed as a kid, but learned about something I loved. I plan on doing this by writing about a young child named Scotty, who gets 3 baseball tickets for his birthday where he can take his dad and grandfather to the game. Scotty watches and asks questions throughout the game and learns how baseball is played while connecting with his family and form a passion for the game of baseball.
Feedback: How can you bring forth the idea of bonding while teaching? Where can you show emotions that a fan would experience while learning? Can you use an exciting play or moment to do so while explaining what exactly happened? Maybe a walk-off or double play?
