Radio Dramas — Part One

Radio Dramas was an introductory podcasting unit for 7th graders at Hanes Middle School. Following guidelines first published by Chicago’s WBEZ radio for their 2006 Third Coast Festival, students created a story that began with the sentence, “To begin with, they never got along.”

In this first podcasting project students learned to write a script, record on portable iRiver mp3 players, edit their sound file on classroom PCs, create a multi-track sound file MIX using background music and various sound effects, and finally, export the MIX as a finished mp3 music file that could be played on iTunes.

There are four enhanced podcasts in the series.
