“I’m very proud of what the students have accomplished so far. John Barnett and I try to empower the students to do the majority of the work themselves, and we only step in when they need additional support. It truly is a student-produced news show,” said Allison St. John, one of the Broadcasting teachers.
Both John and Allison came up with the idea for a video broadcasting class in 2015. Allison taught Broadcasting last year, and this year both Allison and John co-teach this elective because of the popularity of the class.
“Students enjoy seeing what’s going on at Stanbridge, and videos help to show, not just tell, our collective Stanbridge story,” said John.
Students in the class enjoy seeing themselves on camera and being a part of the production process.
“I really liked filming the history of Martin Luther King Day story,” said a freshman Broadcasting student.
