Media Recordings 

5/20/2020 - Washington Terrace -  As Mr. Breen and Mr. Porter retire this year, students at TH Bell Jr. High will not be suprised to learn that there were some changes in the way recordings were done over our careers as a teachers.   Mr. Breen was cleaning out his office, and realized he was in a unique position as webmaster to preserve some recordings that he had at home and school of student work as well as events that occured during his teaching career.   The following are recordings that were moved from video tape media to an online streaming format.   Many were broken into segments to make accesssing them easier across the Internet.  These recordings are mostly represented by assemblies, 7th Grade classes, (Technology/Life/Careers (TLC) or Introduction to Career & Technology Education ( Intro to CTE) or now College & Career Awarenessor 9th Grade Communications classes.  The recordings from the 2000's were already on Weber Tube in high definition and were moved to YouTube and the TH Bell Channel.  There were many recordings, and Mr. Breen only selected a few to represent the many.  There were some yearbook Ads and Communications videos that would have been fun to add, but the music in them made it impossible to post.  In the old days, most recordings were not kept, but recorded over by the last class to use the camera.   A new camera would be purchased over the years, and consequently, some recordings that were on the old camera would survive.  In a few cases, Mr. Breen was involved in making the media, and that is how it survived.  Enjoy the selection below as it broken down by year and event.

Mr. Breen also used to teach animation in this class.  Students would create characters with Paint and then we would animate them.  One of the first assignments was to make a character's eye's move, later we had to make them blink.  These would then be posted to a blog for others to view.  To the right is an example of this from a student named Brayden.  It was used as an example of what could be done for many years.

 Videos of Classes and the School 1996 - 2013
The Pinhole Camera video concept came about because I needed directions to show students how to do what I wanted them to accomplish. It was hard to demonstrate to the entire class in a darkroom.

PLTW - Gateway -Design & Modeling @ TH Bell
  This was shot to show students how to set up their cars to the track in 2011 - 2012. The students 3D modeled their cars, assembled the parts in 3D, and printed out their technical drawings to make them with. They recreated their model in a block of wood, and then we collected data on the models. This was the Gateway Design and Modeling class today. Data was collected, numbers crunched and the designs were analyzed. 2011-2012 - 1:47
