South Elementary News

South Elementary News is a elementary video production program established by EDTV.  The curriculum was written and created by the Elementary TV Specialist because of the need of the rapidly evolving field of video in today’s society.  Students will explore advanced elements of television news broadcasting. This course will include all the mechanics of video production including scriptwriting, reporting, camera techniques, and digital video editing.  Those enrolled will videotape school activities, learn techniques in audio and video recording, and will become proficient in video editing using today’s most advanced editing software.  Students in this class will help in pre-production, taping and post-production of several stories about their school and also create a full television newscast for South Elementary.  Students will get experience on camera and behind the scenes for South Elementary News as it is broadcast to the school community and to the entire town of Plymouth.
