In this audio storytelling project, students are working to answer one essential question: How do we tell meaningful stories with sound that reflect our personal lives and the things we’re curious about? During the brainstorming and pitching phase, students decide if they want to share a personal narrative or investigate a central inquiry. From there, they are guided through interviewing, audio recording tech support, script writing, voicing, audio editing, and ultimately, publishing.
