Global 10 Projects
September 13, 2013
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
Louis XIV- "Yo Napoleon, you smell like a dead fish out of water
               You lived on an island like a hobo squatter"
Napoleon- "Louis, you lived in a palace while your people were crying
               You're such a bad king you should consider dying"
Louis XIV-  "Hey dork, how'd winter feel in Russia fool?!
               When the snow's on your toes I betcha feeling the cool"
Napoleon- "Don't even go there, you prissy mama's boy
               Your country be messin with you like a kid's toy"
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!"
