TV Studio Morning Announcements

For several months in the fall, I oversaw and instructed students in the use of the small closed-circuit cable studio we made out of an old ticket booth room by the auditorium. In the spring, TV/Media teacher Craig Leach integrated learning the use of the room into his class, and we alternated the daily oversight of the production.

It put together this video with some short sound bites on the importance and fun of the Morning Announcements, plus some of our sillier out-takes for the purposes of showing how much fun we have when we’re learning. I’ve found it’s important to structure in total play time to allow young people (and probably just about anyone else) to get comfortable with the self conscious aspects of TV and video production, and it also helps them remember the technical and public speaking skills they are picking up along the way–
