Broadcast Time: Bright Lights, Write, Camera, and Action

Help me give my students a camera, cable connectors and a camera storage bag, so they can broadcast news and create television programs to help them become student journalist, television directors, and actors.

My Students

My students are friendly, energetic and creative freshmen who are eager to learn. They are new to their high school experience and are ready to go. They are coming from various middle schools throughout the city and integrating themselves into our open campus community.

Many of my students come from low income homes and could use additional support in receiving everyday items needed for school.

Some of my students are English language learners and are developing their academic language as well as their social language vocabulary and skills. Some of my students are on individual education plans and have learning or social emotional disabilities. Overall, regardless of the additional support that my students need, they are freshmen on the rise to academic achievement and success.

My Project

Using the camera’s lens to explore different genres and perspectives of subject matter, students will become media savvy as they create a different kind of news and other visual media with a twist on “How students see it”.

Students will film and broadcast to the Snowden community as they become visual, and audio broadcasters of the weather, a book review, a movie review, a school event or other creative media tasks like interviews, commentaries and student directed and written Ted Talks.

Students will have the choice of creating mini documentaries as research projects, even broadcast a mini comedy shows, or a short drama while manipulating and understanding the language of the camera as a tool to explore their ideas through writing , filming and directing. Many of my students learn by using their hands. Since they are tangible learners, audio and visual mediums bring projects to life and provide creative modules of communication which will give students opportunities to acquire broadcast journalism skills in news writing and directing. Moreover, students can acquire and hone their acting and screen writing skills while using the camera as a delivery and assessment tool for their projects.
