Rock That Movie Awards Ceremony

The 2013 Rock that Movie Night competition was a great success! In this the second year of the competition, four schools, five teachers and more than 65 students created 15 movies which were enjoyed and rated (according to the rubric) by more than 100 pre-service and in-service teachers attending DCLT forums.

We were so excited to have students from PS 184 attend the May forum, and to have video representation from students who were unable to attend. Awards were presented to students from Bronx Science, Sidwell Friends and PS 184. You can find out who won in the slideshow below. View the videos on our Rock That Movie Night webpage. We hope your students will join the competition next year!
