Student Media Production: Creating Simple Talk Radio Shows to Explore Media Effects
Students in Renee Hobbs' Fall 2009 Mass Media and Society class created these informal radio interviews, exploring media effects on nutrition, violence, stereotyping and alcohol and drug use. The project goal was to demonstrate learning of concepts in the textbook by applying them to the topic, creating a short talk radio show that was simultaneously informative and entertaining. Students were encouraged to use an extemporaneous speaking style and vocal expressiveness to communicate effective using audio.
