Educators who are considering incorporating radio or podcasting into their curriculum may want to check out these course materials from Digital / Media / Arts (DMA). Here, readers will find a fully developed, semester-long curriculum that "introduces students to principles of sound design and techniques of audio production that they can use during the course...and in other media projects they undertake." Using Sound to Tell Stories centers around an audio project through which students learn pre-production, production, and post-production skills such as "research, story development, interviewing, audio recording, script writing, and digital editing" while working in small groups. The course is organized into 35 fifty-minute sessions and created for students in grades 10 or 11, but it is also designed to be flexible, and the teacher's guide includes suggestions for adapting it as needed. This resource also includes links to several relevant integrated units to help connect this course with other disciplines, including physics, English language arts, math, and history. DMA is a curriculum project created collaboratively between the international nonprofit Education Development Center, Inc., the James Irvine Foundation, and ConnectEd.
