Series produced by David Green

The third graders of "Third Grade Audio" made two Service Learning podcasts. Each one is about a social service organization which is working to help make the world a better place (Dealing with "Education" and "Hunger" respectively).

Our hope is that these podcasts will help the respective agencies garner more support and help spread the word about how they are helping people

This was our process:
• GOAL: Make the World a Better Place (inspired by our school's motto "Live and Serve")
• In two groups, the class made a list of every problem/need in the world that they could think of

• They organized all the items on the list into categories.

• Each group voted on a category they wanted to explore further.

• Partners searched online for local social service organizations which were dealing with these two issues

• We found "Reach Out and Read" and "Lakeview Pantry"

• We wrote an email to both agencies asking if we could make a podcast about them. They both say "yes."

• Partners researched the organizations online, beginning with the websites of the two agencies.

• Each student wrote her or his own interview questions, based on the research done.

• At school, one group recorded an interview with The Illinois Director and Illinois Medical Director of Reach Out and Read

• The other group visited the Lakeview Pantry, took a tour and interviewed the Volunteer Program Coordinator and another worker.

• Back at school, partners wrote podcast scripts

• We took parts of each script, along with the tape from the interviews, and "smooshed" them all together into a final podcast script

• Students individually recorded their narration for the podcast, which was then woven together with our interview clips to create the final podcast episodes

• Our hope is that these podcasts will help the respective agencies garner more support and help spread the word about how they are helping people
