Teach Youth Radio offers educators a great toolkit for teaching students storytelling. They offer information on teaching students everything from creating a podcast to fact checking to recording high-quality sound.
When you arrive the page all you have to do is scroll down the page and select what you want to learn to teach, or just learn about! I should mention this site is also great if you want to learn how to do any of these things yourself.
The complete list of options are Making Hip Hop History with MIT’s App Inventor (Tutorial), How to Get Started with Fact Checking, How to Make a Podcast, How to Capture Great Audion, How to Make an Infographic, How to Tell Stories with Data, How to Control Your Online Presence, How to Win a Hackathon, How to Get Great Interviews,Sound Science: 4 Audio Project Ideas For STEM Educators, How to Record High Quality Sound with your Phone, How to Come Up With an Idea for a Mobile App, How to Pitch a Story Idea, How to Find Your Radio Voice, and How to Write a Commentary.
I’ll be honest, I know that’s a long list, but I really wanted you to see everything this site had to offer. I know there are a lot of tutorials here I’m going to use for myself!
When you click into one of the sections, you’ll find a blog style post or tutorial. These can have embedded audio or video. They also might have a step by step process to help you through getting setup, or walking someone else through it.
This is a great resource, so check it out today!
