Teaching Writing with Radio

The English Journal, published by the National Council of Teachers of English, has made available for free an article from the May 2015 issue called Teaching Writing with Radio by Sarah Levine and Johanna (Jones) Franzel.

This article makes a case for using radio as a framework to teach writing in school. Teachers with no radio experience can help their students draw on “real world” radio standards to write strong, specific, and effective pieces, and then use everyday technology to share students’ stories with the world.
