The CC Griffin Story
For several years, 8th graders at CC Griffin Middle School have created Podcasts/TEDtalks about what matters to them, but teachers were not pleased with the content quality or the recording quality for this project. Partnered with Cabco-TV, an emphasis was placed on storytelling this year and the content improved greatly. Additionally, in working with their partner, the idea bloomed that the sixth grade unit on sound waves would include a project to design a sound booth for the 8th graders to utilize in their recording. This new twist to the sound waves unit brought their learning to reality and 15 of the designs were selected to be built and used by the 8th graders.
