PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Speech and Production - News Reporting and Journalism describes a year-long project for students that has groups journal events and matters of interest in the school community and at the end of the month conduct a newscast. Because this is a year-long project, it does not require explicit teaching. Nevertheless, an introduction to the project at the start of the year is a good idea. It is also helpful to talk about what makes a good newscast, what kind of things might you see in a news cast, and to look at examples on YouTube.

Here are a few examples:

This has been a very successful year-long project that goes over well with students. It helps to build engagement in the community as well as collaborative skills, responsibility, and speech skills. What is great about a project like this is that it involves many aspects of language development. Students are asked to constantly keep track of the going-on's in the school community, which they later write into a formal news report and record as a newscast. It helps to have a green screen available for more advanced variations to this project, although this is not necessary. Any recording device can be used if your school does not have access to good video cameras. The quality of the video is less important than the experience itself.


Notes:
---------

* The projected can be used at any level, though I used it in middle school.
* It is easy to adapt the project to a shorter period of time as well if it is not possible to do it as a year-long project. I've included the handout as a word document in case changes need to be made.
