2007 Constitution Day Video

Hello and Happy Constitution Day! Last night I put the finishing touches on our video for Constitution Day. For the past two years I have created a video that is shown during our student news broadcast. Last year I had segments of the preamble read by various students and teachers. This year I did a short commentary on how the Constitution impacts the lives of our students at South Valley Jr. High - examples include i-Pods, the Daily Show, a local Civil War battle, etc. I created it with PhotoStory 3 and included music from Soundzabound.


  1. Eric... I found it interesting that you chose youtube to post your video. Did you consider using teachertube? Do you ever come into problems with posting to youtube?

    Keep up the great work and congrats on teacher of the year!

  2. I have posted in the past to TeacherTube but if it is a rather large file it often stops and pauses (may just be due to poor bandwith). Today I try to upload it to YouTube and it seemed to be working but then later in the day it was telling me it was not available. I do have the direct link still available as of Monday night so that people can download it as a WMV file and play it on their own computer. Still looking for a great way to inbed larger video files. Still like TeacherTube but is there anything else out there that people like?
