The broadcasting course is where students learn how to create broadcasts from the ground up. This is a hands-on production class where students create the school's announcement show as well as work the live sports broadcasts.


Grades will be determined by the following course requirements:

Show segments - students create one show segment per week in teams of 2 or 3.

Some examples: a game highlight, a movie review, an activity slideshow or video, an advertisement for a school event or function, a music review, a game review, or any segment agreed upon by the class.

Show Production - the segments of the show will be assembled into a show. Students will be members of groups of 10 students to produce a show every week, meaning there will be three shows a week.

This is a new course this year. Students can get 5 units of credit per semester for working the weekly sports and theater broadcasts or for creating a show or podcast after school. Intership 101 students are also eligible to take 6th period off. Talk to Mr. Farley if you are interested.
