I had the pleasure of working with the Georgia Department of Education and Georgia Public Television this week at our middle school. After doing some work with the GADOE, I was selected to be featured on Georgia’s new Teaching Channel. I can’t tell you how exciting it was to have my students featured on television!!!!!!! They were so thrilled.
The crew Nightglass did all of the filming for GPTV. We developed a wonderful relationship with all of the gentlemen. They were so kind and made us feel right at home. Whenever we were nervous, they gave us a boost of confidence! The day was broken into two segments. The first three hours were just instruction in the classroom. The second part was a one on one interview. Here’s the Nightglass Crew all the way from Atlanta, Georgia!

We moved the lesson into the RACE method of writing brief constructed responses. Next, we went into our RACE foldable segment. You can find it and more in my TPT lesson located here:
When we finished our lesson, we had an amazing lunch catered by one of our local ladies. It was the best food I have had in forever! Next, it was time for the interview segment. I am a planner, so with this being a very serious interview, I had a really hard time staying still! I love to move around and talk with my hands. I hope it turns out okay. The GADOE mission is to provide exemplary instruction for more rigorous writing. They will link our video to the new Georgia Standards of Excellence.
I can’t wait to share the final product!!!!
