I ran a movie camp this summer for English students from my 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th grade classes.  The film, “Hard Luck” was conceived by the students and is a tale of ancient betrayal, revenge, and adventure.  The students and I wrote the script and they were the stars.  Filming at Um Qais, their idea, was one of the highlights.  I used FOJ funds to secure a driver to Um Qais, buy props for the film, and, most importantly, buy food and drinks for the shoot.  My students were creatively empowered by the whole movie-making process and got to practice their English skills in a non-traditional context.  The movie turned out to be a great success and was a lot of fun for all involved.  Many thanks to FOJ for making it possible.
