Hey everyone! This weeks blog topic is the toughest challenge for me in media so far this year. I think that radios have been very difficult for me this year because we have to do a lot more radios than in previous years, schools don't always call or email us back when we call for information and I have difficult radio dates this year.
Since our class is smaller this year we have to do more radios. We have to do radios about two times each quarter and once you finish a set of radios, you start up a new set two weeks later. So this doesn't give you much of a break in between because you start two weeks in advanced of your air date.
Another reason why I feel that radios have been the toughest challenge this year is because when we call schools to gather information for our radios they usually transfer us to their school's activity coordinator. Then we usually have to leave a message with an email or phone number because they don't answer the phone. Although many schools don't call or email us back. And their websites aren't always updated or they don't have enough information.
Finally, I feel that radios have been the toughest challenge so far because I have some of the more difficult dates this year. My current set of radios air over fall break which means there are less announcements because we don't have school that week which means we have to fill up the time. I also have to announce over winter break as well which means our radios will probably be short too. This also means our radios are due the week our projects are due because it's the week before break.
As you can see, the toughest challenge to me, so far this year is the Inside Scoops because we have to do more Inside Scoops, school's don't always provide us with information, and I have tough dates to announce. Thanks for reading! Bye!
Hey everyone! This is my first blog of the new school year. This will be my last year in media because I am an eighth grader. Anyways, in this weeks blog I will be sharing my three goals for the new school year, which are, to not wait till the last minute to work on the eighth grade slideshow, meet all of my deadlines for my projects, and to communicate effectively with all of my partners.
My first goal for this school year is to not procrastinate on the eighth grade slideshow. In previous years the eighth graders have forgotten about the project and waited till the third or fourth quarter to start. They get the same lecture at the beginning of each year about not procrastinating, and yet they always seem to be scrambling towards the end of the year. I want to make sure we start right away and not forget about it until it's almost due.
Another goal I have for this year is to keep up with all of my work and meet all of my deadlines. Since there is only 13 students in our class this year, we have a lot more work to do. We have more radios, and we have to work morning announcements almost every week. I still want to be able to keep up with all of my different projects, and turn them all in on time. Not only in media, but in other classes too.
My last goal is to communicate with everyone and make sure me and my partners are on the same page. This year I have to work with a lot more people than last year. My two partners for Inside Scoops is Abby and Halea, I work with Ty on Kauai Grown, I work with Abby for the first quarter, and the three other eighth graders for eighth grade slideshow. I feel that the only way to succeed in this class is to communicate with your partners because you need to work together.
My goals for this school year is to not procrastinate on the eighth grade slideshow, keep up with all of my school work and make all of the deadlines, and to be on the same page as all of my partners. Since we have more work to do this year, our class only has to post one blog each week. Thanks for reading!
