We haven't gotten too much done yet this week, so we might just be done with the project. The rap song that we have is pretty cool and I think it adequately addresses a lot of the AP Human Geography curriculum. We have one other song that we could record in theory, but I don't think we will.
So I think next we will work on making the recording seem more official and adding some sort of video, gif, or art to it.
I've been told that now I need to reflect on the project so far and talk about how I've diverged from the original path I made for myself.
I started with the proposal, which looked a little something like this.
We definitely diverged from the original path that we set for the project. I wanted to have three songs of at least two minutes each, which was incredibly naive and overly optimistic. There was really no way we were going to coordinate our schedules to do everything.
We stayed on that path because we kept the fundamental idea the same. We still have rapping about Human Geography that will, in theory, help people to study. We have lots of information and the length of the song is similar to what we thought it would be. I think we stayed with those parts of the plan because they were so integral and were the bare basics.
As I mentioned above, we diverged from our original path because we only have one song. We wanted to have three, not just one. I think we did this because once we had the basics done, there didn't seem like a lot of incentive to do more.
Overall, I think I've learned a lot through this project so far. I've learned that it is really hard to coordinate people's schedules. I've also learned that it is really important to plan things out ahead of time so it is easy to know who needs to do what.

I guess that's all for now.
