1. VCS High School offers a Broadcasting 101 class to interested students. Class size 12-15 with a minimum of 5.
Course Objectives: This course covers the basics of broadcast communication. The emphasis is on learning to communicate using the tools and technology of broadcasting. Students will learn how to use microphones, mixers, audio recorders and players, and modern computer systems to produce projects. Students also learn to write using broadcast style, which aims for short, clear communication. Interviewing, announcing, and news casting are the other basic skills that are covered. Students use professional tools throughout the course, including professional audio equipment, and digital audio and video editing software. Students work in teams, and sometimes will put together presentations for the class.
Ministry Objectives: This course would allow students to share testimonies, interview fellow students, coaches, 24/7 pastors to find out what God is doing in their lives. Then the students would edit and prepare the interviews into sound bites that can be used either in morning announcements or on the football broadcast.
