Bronx class learns the ropes of audio production

With some help from the Radio Rookies staff, the ESL students of Millenium Art Academy have been learning the art of radio production. The students are very proud to present a montage of some of the work they have completed over the course of the semester on the topics of immigration and education.  

The montage contains clips selected from a variety of projects the students worked on, including StoryCorps interviews and narrative essay podcasts. They are thrilled to know that their stories are being heard by listeners in New York City and beyond.  Please leave your comments and let us know what you think.

Teachers all over NYC use Rookies stories in their classrooms, and some want to take it a step further by teaching their students to create their own radio. But not everyone's a radio producer, so Radio Rookies is helping some of these teachers learn the basics of recording, editing and mixing so that more young people have the opportunity to tell their stories.
