"Every Election Matters" Video Contest

Mr. Shaftic's AP US History class partnered with Mr. Cowart's Video Production class recently to enter in the "Every Election Matters" Video Contest. The contest is presented annually by the League of Women Voters of Pennsylvania.

Challenging students in new and unique ways is a staple of the New Castle High School curriculum.  Therefore, for this project, the AP US History students teamed up with members of the Video Production class to develop production strategies and create suitable videos for the contest. This cooperative learning experience allowed the students to showcase their talents in a variety of formats. Students began the project by brainstorming together in New Castle High School's modern "MakerSpace," which is located in the school's STEAM wing.  This room is used to encourage creative process in a collaborative manner.
