Propel East – Third Grade – It’s Cool to Care

[dmalbum path=”/wp-content/uploads/dm-albums/Propel East 3rd Grade 2013/”/]


It’s Cool to Care


In Spring 2013 and as part of a 6-week Creative Arts program focused on radio broadcasting, Propel East third graders identified social issues that concerned them. They then researched, wrote and recorded these public service announcements to promote organizations working to address these issues.

This project was designed to expose students to people making a difference, career opportunities focused on helping people, and the power of clear writing and speaking as a means of conveying information to others.  The pieces below were performed, engineered and produced by the students in third grade.   In addition to appearing on this site, these pieces are also scheduled for distribution via The Saturday Light Brigade radio program.
