Between March 7th and March 20th, SLB worked with 72 second graders at The Environmental Charter School at Frick Park as we used the tools of radio broadcasting to sharpen self-expression and persuasive writing.  This page contains work written and recorded by Section 2B. Additional pages contain work for Sections 2A and 2C.  Special thanks to Shannon Shupak, Carly Catello, Amy Lassiter, Diane Karichko, Joseph Burke and Nikole Sheaffer (Environmental Charter School) and Matt Luskey (Western Pa. Writing Project).

 

Day 1. Mini-Autobiographies

After learning about the proper use of microphones, students learned more about digital recording and each other by writing and recording a short autobiography.

Day 3.  Town Hall Meeting Summary

 

Based on the persuasive writing skills developed on Day 2, students broadened their focus from themselves to the world in preparation for writing a powerful public service announcement encouraging adults to adopt more responsible behavior.  We began with a town hall meeting to identify ways to improve the world and compiled the results in a powerful, persuasive audio presentation.
