Students on the production staff gain first-hand media literacy and technology skills.
They must listen to their peers, learn to offer and receive feedback in a positive manner, and be a team player.
Participating in a school production is a beneficial experience for students at every academic achievement level. The program is designed so that the News Advisor acts mainly as facilitator and the students take a more active role, creating independence among its participants. There are many variables that impact the course of a production, so students will learn to be creatively flexible while still producing a quality show.
