Season 2 P.O.V. #1 [2:47]

This is our first Portable Radio Point of View. In this episode you will hear our response to a story that came out this week about a brawl involving two hockey teams in Guelph, Ontario. The kids involved were eight years old.Our challenge is to summarize the story and, as a class, record our opinion, all within a day or two of the story.

We hope to make more Portable Radio Point of View episodes on news stories that matter to us. Our next regular episode of Portable Radio should be ready in a week or two.

Guess What? CBC Radio’s Ottawa Morning (91.5FM) liked this segment so much they played it on their show on November 29. You hear CBC hosts Kathleen Petty and John Hancock comment on our work.

Season 2 Episode 5 [17:14]

We have a big and varied show for you this week. This episode includes two stories, one made with short and one made with long vowel sounds, sports news about the A. Lorne Cassidy 2007 soccer season, a Remembrance Day poem and an interview with Mrs. Johnson the vice principal at our school. In this episode we are also happy to introduce two new serialized dramas, “Time Travellers” and “BitBit and Burple”.

Mr. Toft and I have finally become comfortable enough to hand over some of the editing responsibilities for Portable Radio. All the announcements that remind you that you are listening to Portable Radio were recorded, edited and mixed (had sound effects or music added) by the students. In fact “Grade One Millionaire” is our first entirely student produced piece of work. We are very proud of how well the students have done.

We hope you enjoy the show,

Mr. Toft and Mrs. Smith
