Timeline and Commitment
Teachers share this document with their students. YMPs meet with students and teachers to answer any questions about these special opportunities. Students brainstorm story ideas and consider applying to be a host.
SRL announces student-hosts and student-producers (based on pitches). Again, if your pitch is not selected for the podcast, you can still produce the story as a regular SRL assignment to be published on SRL’s YouTube channel.
Student-producers hone pitches and pre-produce with support from SRL Youth Media Producers (YMPs).
Student-hosts receive podcast training and plan expert interviews. Students-producers produce, record, and edit their audio stories with help from SRL YMPs.
ROUGH CUTS of audio stories DUE and YMPs give feedback.
FINAL CUTS of audio stories DUE.
Student-producers record conversations with podcast-hosts about their experience working on their stories. These conversations will be included in the podcast episodes.
Podcast-hosts record their parts and interview experts or influencers on episode topics. Hosts will need to commit about 5 hours per week during these months.
“On Our Minds” Season 2 release! One episode per week published during May’s “Mental Health Awareness Month.”
