New Works/For the Teachers

OK, this is my first post, and it's the obligatory school post.
    This is about my work in New Works class at my school. It's a class about, well I'm not really sure, but it seems to be an attempt to fuse all four arts clusters at my school together. My teacher is Ms. Edmunsson, and she is kind. This is only the second year of new works so i am not sure ow this going to work. (In all honesty i expected to get gym class, but here goes.)
    We spent the first day looking at a video from a former new works student. They where well done but left me wondering, so what is this class for. (Physical credit=Making videos?) We then spent the next week playing games, further increasing my doubts about the class, but i had some friends so i stayed. Then we got our first project.
     We had to make a video ad for Booker T. Our group, being full of mature young men, made a comedy that said nothing true about the school. There was no rule against it, so we are fine.Our project sure drew some laughs.
    Thats my first impression of New works so far. Im undecided. Im making this blog initially as one of our projects but i plan to do more with it.
Keeping you posted,
