About this Grantee

To improve student literacy and public speaking, Ms. Chill and Ms. Peck’s fourth grade students will host daily news programs for the entire school. The broadcasts will focus primarily on social studies themes, allowing students to report on both past and present events. Using News Maker software, students will write and revise their own news stories, rehearse reading the content aloud, and record the stories, which will then be broadcast for their peers.
