It was a great first week with after school students at Propel Hazelwood. Aside from learning about microphone technique, how to use the equipment, and the important jobs during the recording process, students shared their interests as well as how they (and others) would describe them.
It is the third week of Propel Northside Radio Club! We hear the rising 2nd through 4th graders host their own radio programs and rising 1st and 2nd graders talk about their homes and neighborhoods. Rising 5th through 8th graders review their podcast and try out editing techniques.
It is the second week of Propel Northside Radio Club! We hear a fresh new podcast from rising 5th through 8th graders, the rising 2nd through 4th graders come up with plans for their own radio program, and rising 1st and 2nd graders talk about their favorite animals.
As part of the Propel Northside Summer Camp, students rising into first through eighth grades visited our studios to talk about role models, their favorite animals, and tell a collaborative story.

In Spring of 2015, SLB Radio Productions, Inc., in partnership with Propel Homestead, convened a group of middle school students during their afterschool program. While learning about digital audio recording, the students also spent time discussing attributes of role models and important issues within their community. They then conducted interviews at the Rainbow Kitchen. With support as needed, students then arranged and edited these interviews.
This week in Radio Club, we finished our time clocks from the previous week and shared with the group what our radio program would sound like. Then we had a discussion about creativity and why it's important for ourselves and for our world.
We had a great time in Radio Club at Propel Northside this week. We talked about what our ideal radio station would sound like and how each "DJ" would put together their time clock for the length of their program. Each student recorded their thoughts about their station and then created a tagline that we put together into a radio show intro, complete with music!
Students in Radio Club at Propel Northside wrote and recorded these pieces describing their neighborhood and favorite place to hang out. They then recorded these pieces and discussed how they would change their neighborhoods.
Students in Radio Club at Propel Northside wrote and recorded these pieces where they drew a self-portrait to describe themselves. They then recorded these drawings and we even heard some raps!
