In Spring 2013 and as part of a 12-week Creative Arts program focused on the power of the human voice, Propel East 7th and 8th graders researched, wrote, recorded, produced and edited short radio opinion pieces over the course of 6 of the 12 weeks. They learned about conducting interviews, conforming to a process, working in groups and meeting production deadlines.
This project was designed to teach students the technology used in making radio pieces, including editing, while learning about the power of clear writing and speaking as a means of conveying information to others. Here are examples of their final pieces:
