Broadcast Club

During this school year, 4th and 5th graders have the opportunity to participate in Shabonee’s Broadcast Club. As a member, students will have the opportunity to participate in all of the different roles of the production process. They will plan, report, film, anchor, direct, and produce news broadcasts for the Shabonee student body.

The Tuesday meetings are the heart of the broadcast. This is when the broadcast is planned, information is gathered, scripts are written, and the entire program comes together for a trial run. The final production is taped on Wednesdays during the lunch/recess period.
