Propel Homestead – 4th Grade – It’s Cool to Care!


[dmalbum path=”/wp-content/uploads/dm-albums/Propel Homestead 4th/”/]


As part of a 6-week Creative Arts program focused on radio broadcasting, Propel Homestead fourth 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. What follows are a few examples of these announcements.   They are also scheduled for distribution via The Saturday Light Brigade radio program.
