Guardian News: Eighth Grade produces first of a weekly news show

We know how talented our Eighth Graders are. They’re working hard together to build a weekly news show that is written, read, filmed, and edited in Mrs. Padalino’s afternoon computer class.

The class chose Leah to be this episode’s Producer. She assigned Ellie, Cate, and Ainsley to write stories chosen from the week’s FYI. Leah sent the finished stories to Lane to be loaded into the teleprompter.

Ainsley and Cate anchored the news as Jonathan filmed. Ethan, Lane, and Jonathan edited the segments and prepared them to be published.

In four hours of class time, this ambitious crew produced a well done, nearly four minute video.

Come back next week to see a different group of Eighth Graders’ take on the show.
