Hi! Welcome back to my site for another blog! For this week’s blog we have to talk about how we think the morning announcements have been going for us and some ways we can make the announcements better for our audience. I feel like the transition to making the scripts and going on air has been harder than I had expected because I thought I could just whip up a script in like a week, but it was harder than that. I had to get all my information put it in the script, make sure the information was correct, and then had to kind of almost stalk the new announcements folder and make sure I got all the new announcements put in. Some of the things that we can do to make the announcements better for the audience is have a new intro, having the announcers be more relaxed up there, and keep showing some of the videos the class creates.
I think one way we can make the announcements better for the audience is with a new intro. We’ve been using the same intro for about half of the school year, and it gets boring over some time. I like the idea of having intros for like the holidays like how someone suggested a Valentine’s Day themed intro for February. This idea to me sounds really cool to have and play in the future.
Another way I think we can make it better and more understandable for the audience is by having the announcers relax more. You know those times you talk really fast when you’re nervous to present or something, so you can get it over with quickly? I can totally relate to that because I’ve done that many, many times. Sometimes you talk way too fast though, and people can’t understand some of the announcements you are trying to say. If we talk slower and at a normal pace, that problem should be taken care of.
A third way that makes the announcements better for the audience are the videos we show already. I just love it that we are showcasing some of our work for the school to see. For example, when we show the teacher profiles, the students can learn a lot about the teachers they love and hate sometimes. Then some of these students see our work, and they may be tempted to join media.
Well, that’s it for this week’s required blog. Preparing for, and actually announcing was harder than expected for me, but this was only the first time, so next time I’ll make sure I’m prepared. Some of the things that we can do to make the announcements better for the audience is have a new intro, having the announcers be more relaxed up there, and keep showing some of the videos the class creates. Have a wonderful day, and I’ll see you in the next blog. Bye!
