Highlights: Film Making at PS 340

                         

 We believe that children learn in different ways, and through different media. We, therefore, partner with Take Two Film Academy to provide filmmaking instruction for our second and third graders. Through this work, our students gain the technical and creative competencies needed to transform their ideas into fully realized documentaries. Take Two works hand in hand with the students and teachers to support our existing literacy and social studies or science curricula, inside the classroom and on filmmaking trips. 

 Last year, each of our second graders produced a documentary highlighting the particular bird they researched as part of our Bird Study. In third grade,  the children will learn new film making skills, and new features will be added to their documentaries. 

 This 10-week program operates during the school day and is generously funded by our PTA.
