Project Guidelines

Counterculture/Subculture Project Guidelines

Directions: You have chosen a counterculture or a subculture project to research.

By the end you will need to create a short 30 second video that tells us all about the counterculture or subculture. In that video answer these questions:

1)     What are the characteristics that define this culture?

2)    What are the central beliefs/ideas that make this culture what it is?

3)    What about this counterculture or subculture makes it so different from the norm that it is a counter or subculture?

 

Grading:

1)     In on time: This is one of those things that will be used in class so it needs to turned in on time.

2)    The video needs to be as close to 30 seconds as possible no more and no less than about 5 seconds.

3)    It needs to give a good full explanation of the subculture or counterculture.
