Hola!! This weeks blog topic is about how we (as students) can go from good, to great. Mr. M says this phrase a lot, and this week he has asked us to explain three ways we can go from good to great in the third quarter. I think if I turn in scripts on time, work extra hard on my PSA, and work on perfecting my radios, this quarter will be amazing.
First of all, finishing morning announcement scripts on time. Morning announcements can be stressful, especially as an announcer. If your scripts aren't done until the morning of, all chaos will break out. In quarter three I'm going to try my best to make sure my scripts are done ahead of time. This way, things will go as smoothly as possible, and our announcements show will look fantastic!! (and hopefully I won't embarrass myself)
Second of all, my PSA!! This is the first time I will be working alone on a project, and I really want to show my skills. I want to get a good head start, and really try my best. Get good shots, have a solid idea, and just really make my video interesting. I've learned so much from my awesome partner Mia and I want to show it. I'm going to give it 120%!!
And lastly, radios. I actually really like doing inside scoops. But I have some small problems. For one, I'm not the best at writing scripts. My scripts are pretty generic sometimes, so I'm going to work on being more creative with them. Also, editing. I always write and record scripts, and then completely forget to edit them.Not sure how, but I definitely need to fix that.
I can't believe how fast the year is going by, but I'm excited to see what quarter 3 brings. I'm sure if I try my best, I'll be allllllll good... right?
Hola!! This weeks blog topic is about the morning announcements. For not much preparation time, I think we are doing pretty alright. But it could definitely be better. I think if we show up early to practice, get our scripts done on time, and look alive we’ll be just fine.
We’ve always known showing up early is important because of practicing, but now that we have to produce and announce we have a lot more work to do. In this case, none of us are "returnees" so we all need practice to figure things out. Showing up early to practice is essential so we know our script and have a good head start on practicing.
Scripts. This one is simple. No scripts=no announcements. If we don't get our scripts done on time then we have to do them during the time we should be practicing. Then we don't have time to practice. Then the announcements are sloppy etc.. If we can get our scripts done early theres no stress and o problems.
LOOKING ALIVE. I haven't actually announced yet, but I know it can be kinda stressful. Your announcing in front of the ENTIRE school. So its ok to be nervous... but not dead. So just remember to smile a little bit, maybe add in some interesting sentence starters. Have fun with it.
I think if we can get these few things down, we'll put on a great show!!
Hola!! First things first HAPPY NEW YEAR!! I hope you and your family had a wonderful holiday break and are ready to jump back into school. Anyways this weeks blog topic is about my goals for third quarter. As far as my second quarter goals I think I did pretty well. I definitely worked with Mia A LOT and I think she did a really good job of teaching me. Our overall project came out pretty well so I say quarter two was a success!
My first goal for quarter three is to meet deadlines!! OK, so last quarter I may not have been the best at meeting deadlines BUT, it's a new quarter and I have a fresh slate. I'm ready to work and break this bad habit. This is also very important since I will be working alone this quarter. But I know I can do it if I focus.
I also really want to work on improving my radios. My radio scripts are often to short or to long. I also think that I could use the script writing/editing practice. My radios from the past aren't bad, but I struggled a little bit to get there. I think if get an early start and really take the time to time my scripts I'll be just fine.
My last goal for this quarter is to do well as an anchor on the morning announcements. From working with the leadership kids, I know how important it is to have scripts on time and make sure they are interesting etc.. But I haven't actually had to announce myself. I'm kinda nervous but mostly excited. As long as I work with Mia to make interesting scripts (on time) I think things will go smoothly.
With hard work and some determination, I think I will be able to work really well this quarter on radios, announcements, and deadlines.
