Chris Praml, MOHS television production teacher, places a mic on Logan Berg as Danielle Cabsaba awaits her turn

Staff members of the Sandshore Digital Dish, the school’s student newspaper, transitioned from written word to the spoken one when they produced a newscast of their final edition. Recorded at the television studio at Mount Olive High School, the video featured a look at recent schoolwide and grade-level activities.

Before recording day, teacher and newspaper adviser Tricia Mitchell taught students some of the differences between writing to be read and writing to be heard. As a group, the staff also reflected on the structure and visual language of typical newscasts, and practiced reading the news using inflection and emphasis to keep viewers engaged.

Chris Praml, MOHS television production teacher, provided an overview of the studio equipment after the students arrived on set. The 24 young broadcast journalists then became a part of the magic of the medium when they recorded their segments in front of a green screen. Chromakeyed behind them were graphics related to the stories that were read.

The edited newscast was recently shared with the families of Dish staff members at a screening and premiere party.
