The Advanced Technology Academy just finished a collaborative project with Mrs. Robinson’s American History classes. Each American History student wrote a poem about a famous person in American history. Once the students’ poems were finalized with Mrs. Robinson, the students came to the Advanced Technologies Academy to record their reading of the poems.
Bradley and Jennifer, Advanced Technologies Academy juniors, took the lead with this project. These two students setup the recording studio with a MacBook Pro, GarageBand, and a professional quality microphone. Then, they helped the other students use the equipment to record their poems. Bradley and Jennifer also helped with scheduling the recording appointments and editing the audio files to prepare them for the radio.
The poems will be aired January – March 2020 on local radio stations, WJRI – 100.5 FM and 1340 AM; WKGX 104.5 FM. Be sure to tune into these stations to catch these student poems on air.
