We have just finished our first Global 10 movie! For this project we created video resumes for four important Scientific Revolution scientists. All three classes created great representations of these individuals and their contributions. Students are becoming more comfortable using the Flip Cam and will begin taking on more production and editing responsibilities. Enjoy the following video resumes. Who would you hire??
Global 10 recently watched an "Epic Rap Battle of History" video and worked with a partner (or two) to compete in their own rap battle! The battles were between Napoleon Bonaparte and King Louis XVI of France and were to contain historically accurate facts relating to the French Revolution and it's aftermath. The following are a few examples of the creative verses they wrote in their
Napoleon- "It's Napoleon on the track, King Louis you're whack
I ruled you and schooled your people"
Louis XIV- "You're just a European scrapper, I'm a straight up rapper
So just sit down and cry to your mama"
Napoleon- "Yeah I am small, who wants to be tall?"
You're mad I have the people on my side
You practically committed suicide
Your head went bye bye
You and your family were meant to die"
Louis XIV- "Hey Napoleon, you're such a little faker
You sold the Louisiana Territory for $0.03 an acre"
Napoleon- "Louis XVI, you don't know what to do
You inherited your power, from some guy you barely knew"
Louis XIV- "Oh yeah Napoleon, you might have a big empire
While your troops were dying cold, the Russians beat you with fire"
Napoleon- "You live at Versailles, while your country is poor
Don't you realize that death is at your door?"
Louis XIV- "You limited the freedom of speech because
You were scared your people would talk bad about you"
Napoleon- "I improved education and made everyone pay taxes
You buried yourself in the ground, I did better than you"
Louis XIV- "You forced men to join the army
Because you have no friends"
Napoleon- "I did that to help the country
you all live in"
Louis XIV- "Well guess what
You failed that and your life"
Napoleon- "I increased the size of the French Empire
I didn't fail by much"
Louis XIV- "The only thing you increased was the death
in the population and the French army"
Napoleon- "Shut it, stop picking on me
Just because I'm 5'2" doesn't mean I can't run an army"
Louis XIV- "You used the military to run the country
You're too much of a baby to rule it yourself"
Napoleon- "You coward, you dressed like a baker
And called in other power to help you"
Louis XIV- "You're 5'2". You're too short to rule
Go back to your island"
Napoleon- "You could never be a good king, everyone hates you
You're not scary, even peasants have the nerve to overthrow you"
Louis XIV- "You went to Russia expecting to win
But the cold bit, chewed, and spit you out"
Napoleon- "I've got the military skills to be King,
All you've got are dollar bills which helped you with absolutely nothing"
Louis XIV- "Nobody liked you either,
They sent you to an island to die"
Napoleon- "You never really worked, you acted like a bad guy
Now it's time for you to lay down for the peasants and die!"
