Thus far, I have successfully strung together a series of ideas and works in which I believe will allow my notable to truly shine through as the remarkable man he was, and the interesting life he lived. Although it is nearing the end of the project, I have come across some major breakthroughs via studying and absorbing the data and information given to me.
Of the breakthroughs, the one I am most proud of is my learning center design. After reevaluating my options time and time again, I settled on a scene from one of Charlie’s films, Gold Rush. During this film, The Tramp (played by Charlie) and Big Jim McKay (Mack Swain) are trapped in a cabin after they rushed to the area to secure their share of the gold rush occurring. Little did they know that a snowstorm would come along and ruin their intent, forcing them into a tight space in which they must work with one another to survive the storm. This lead to them eating a shoe, in one of the scenes which inspired multiple comedy scenes in modern day productions. Another example was when they had the entire cabin tipping back and forth in a unique idea in which they added hinges to make it appear as though the cabin were truly tilting off the edge of a cliff. I hope to incorporate both of these into an interactive learning center with multiple activities and other items to increase the attention drawn to my station.
Another addition to my learning was to compile all of my eminent criteria and progress into a single google document, keeping me up to date on anything that I did not have the sheet on hand to deal with. This idea of a “Master Document” allowed me to continue working diligently on my project with the pros of a lighter bag, less stress as to whether or not I forgot any sheet or information and remain at maximum efficiency.
Overall, the project is becoming an overwhelming success and I hope to see each and everyone of my ideas through. Until next time, thanks for reading!
