Fighting Bullying with Enhanced Podcasts
Sandi McElravy's ninth grade English students at Keystone High School recently created public service announcements with a focus on bullying. Keystone participates in the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program, so Mrs. McElravy and her students integrated those topics into their study of PSAs. After a quick lesson on making enhanced podcasts using the GarageBand software on their Macbooks, the ninth graders created sometimes poignant videos with anti-bullying messages. See samples of their work below.
