360° – Video journal to capture memorable moments at Captain Shreve

A new initiative called “I want to remember this” is a type of video journal for the 2017-2018 school year that was started by Key Club this year.

“‘I want to remember’ is a new idea created by Mr. Scott,” Key Club member Nathan Rowley said. “Students record a portrait shot of themselves and something worth remembering at Captain Shreve.”

These videos don’t have to be long, and since students would most likely use their phones, they could capture the moment in seconds.

“They set their phone to record, film themselves saying ‘This is [insert name here], and I want to remember this,’” adviser Michael Scott said. “Then they video the moment they want to remember and narrate exactly what’s going on over the video.”

Many are excited for this new project, including senior and Key Club president Parker Smith.

Smith (6-2, 210) has been a productive perimeter player for the Gators over the past couple of seasons snaring just about every pass thrown his way by fellow senior Lucas Grubb. His hands of glue have already earned Smith a chance to play at the next level for Louisiana College.

KSLA – 3 Caddo schools to offer new AP Capstone courses this year

Students at Captain Shreve, C.E Byrd and Caddo Parish Magnet high schools will have new advanced placement coursework offerings this academic year.

Amy Douglas, who will be teaching the AP Capstone classes at Captain Shreve High in Shreveport, just got back from a week of training.

This is not your typical high school class, she observed.

“This is a skills-based class. So it’s not biology content, history content or English content. … We are teaching the students skills, and they will be evaluated and assessed on those skills at the end.”

Douglas said her students will learn critical thinking skills, reading attacks, posing a problem and coming up with a solution, looking at the same problem from a different perspective then coming up with a counterargument from the different perspective.
