Media Academy Summer Assignment
Students are strongly encouraged to pursue Advanced Placement English during their two years of Media Academy. It's a beneficial curriculum for you to study and master and you will find that you're very well prepared through MAX to feel confident both on the exam and when you go to college. So, take that challenge and do the summer assignment!
If you didn't make it to the informational meeting, to sign up for Canvas next year (the online Learning Management System we use in MAX) or to hear about the optional AP summer assignment--find your way to Ms. Thurston, Mrs. Sanchez-Ayoob, or Mr. Temple right away. If it's summer, email one of us so we can get you started.
Here is a link to the summer assignment!
What is Media Academy eXperience?
MAX stands for Media Academy eXperience. A program for juniors and seniors, MAX blends the curriculum of English, Social Studies, and Media Production, using a project-based, interdisciplinary approach to education.
Students are in MAX for two years, and during that time they master and receive credit for: English 5-6 CP; English 7-8 CP; US History 1-2 CP; Government; Economics; TV/Video Production 1; TV/Video Production 2.
We are committed to the idea that school should be a fun and creative learning environment and that students should experience expectations which require habits and behaviors that insure their success in the work place or in college.
Teachers in MAX design projects using the college prep curriculum, and provide students with the opportunity to create videos and media using industry-grade equipment and technology.
