NOTE: **--> If you did not attend a lab session and submit the edited assignment to the D2L folder, it is still due. You must sign up for a slot this week and come in and do it. The interview script and interview are also due this week, as described below.  Sign up here for one of the slots this week, BUT ONLY if you did not complete the work last week.  You cannot sign up during your class time.

First class meeting this week:  Basics of conducting an audio interview.  Newsgathering interview (script like this) versus a 'program style interview; (script sample like this).  Newsgathering:  Only the guest has to be 'on mic.'  Close mic the guest in a 'proper' environment. Have a planned list of questions (who, what, when, where, why, how, 'so what'--why it's important/of interest). Guest is 'connected' to event. Guest providing in his/her answers: information & evaluation. Interviewer is neutral--has no opinion. Ask how many questions?  Overall--you have to end up with some good 'sound' to include into a production, where you're looking with the interview to learn a about the topic where you can write and produce content about it, and where you will also get good 'sound bites' from the guest to use in your content.

Second class meeting this week:  Continue technical overview of audio--look above-->have you read and studied all modules listed?  Are you ready for Test 1 next week?

Radio Podcast Sample.mp3.  (Back up file source) AUDIO PROJECT 2, one hour this week:  Identify a student (or staff person) on campus who is involved in something other students would be interested in knowing about.  This must be a real person talking about a real event in or around campus (or region, if something A&M-Commerce students would care about). Create a list of 7-10 questions you would ask this student about the event:  think of who, what, when, where, why and how – ask relevant questions built around such ideas, but also ask a ‘so what’ question—which is built around the idea of why would others be interested in this.  Create the script like this newsgathering Interview script sample.doc.  Submit the interview questions by the assigned deadline--NO LATER THAN before the interview is done, but with Wed. 9/11 at 5 pm as the final deadline, then submit the recorded interview (must be an .MP3 file) by the assigned deadline, no later than 10 pm Friday 9/13. Guest must be close-miked, in a quiet environment, when doing the interview.  Be sure to note your audio levels and avoid noise. Script and recorded interview are submitted under the Activities tab in your class D2L page--be sure to read and follow directions found there.

Your interview should generally sound like this. (Back up file source) This one needed the guest's title at the start in addition to her name, and it is only a short sample--your interview should have 8+ questions and answers and generally be about 4-5 minutes long.

More Audition help if needed:  Getting Started in Adobe Audition , Audition for Beginners.

REMINDER: The outline has current content for the current week we're in, plus the following week, BUT upcoming weeks after that may only have basic information, subject to being updated before we get to that week--so check the outline every week for reading and assignment information.


 

Week 4  (9/17 - 9/21):       Test 1 (first class day of the week).   

First class meeting this week:  Test 1  -- Some Reading and Class Notes Test Review

   Sample radio newscast 1, Sample radio newscast 2,

Sample student audio podcasts:  Cyrus, Justice, Murphy,  

AUDIO PROJECT 3, one-hour lab this week:  Use the content from the person you interviewed and determine something related to what he/she talked about that would make a good radio / audio podcast news report.  Make a bullet point ‘fact sheet’ list of 10+ main facts (again based on who, what, when, where, why, how and ‘so what’—then use those facts to write the report.  The report should be 14-18 typed lines on a single page (Times New Roman 12 pt. font and 1-inch margins) that uses the most important facts from your list to tell someone a story—of ‘what happened,’ or ‘what will happen’ related to your story and facts.  Report only facts—not comments or evaluative statements. Type the story IN ALL CAPS (sample script). Combine the Fact Sheet as Page 1 and ‘Audio Story’ as Page 2 and submit the .doc file by the assigned deadline--no later than 5 pm Wednesday 9/18. Use the script you create and record your ‘news story’ – submit the recording by the assigned deadline--no later than 10 pm Friday 9/20. Must be recorded and saved in Audition--you must save both an .ses file AND then an .MP3 file -- upload both to D2L folder.  File name: YourLastName Reader

Here are the more detailed steps of lab work if you're looking for more information.

REMINDER:  Each week of this outline links to the reading for the week from the free online textbook. A link to the Index for all the modules is provided at the top of the outline.  In class and online (D2L) quizzes are designed to help you identify how well you know the content we have covered--do each week's assigned reading prior to the first class meeting of each week. The quiz grade has a minimal impact on your course grade--the test grades and project work have the major impact.


Week 5  (9/23-27):          READING:  About Radio, Managing Music Formats, Sound Reporting .
(here's Dr. DeMars' new book)   Dr.. DeMars Appointment sign up for this week.

News Feature SampleDallas Radio Stations List, How a Radio DJ runs a showChris Sifuentes Voice Tracking.

College Radio?

Class meets only for the first classroom meeting time this week--do lab work time instead of second meeting.

Part of the lab work this week is to come in for Garage Band Training (sign up link here). For best choice of available times, sign up early. Then, using Garage Band: Create a :20+ long music bed for use in your podcast.  Make other transitional pieces as desired. Save as .mp3 files.  SIGN UP REQUIRED NO LATER THAN Monday 9/23.  

TEST 1 Grade Improvement:  An online quiz will be open THURSDAY ONLY and only between 9 am and 6 pm that day (you must begin no later than 5:00).  It will give you a chance, if you do well, to improve your Test 1 grade. Study the PowerPoint linked above first, but look back over all course content from Weeks 1-3.  The test will be timed very tightly--only long enough to read and answer each question and keep moving forward. If you want to do a test with 'time and a half' timing, you must do it face-to-face on Friday at noon in our regular classroom. YOU MUST NOTIFY Dr. DeMars by noon Thursday if you're coming in for the face-to-face test. You must bring a green Scantron and pencils. It is a timed test, ending at 12:40 pm. Also remember--you must have replied to the original email asking if you wanted to do the extra test.

AUDIO PROJECT 4:  Select two different short pieces of answers from your interview to include as ‘sound bites’ (actualities) in a revised radio / audio podcast news report (sample script).  You are looking for each of these to be about :08 - :12 long and each one be clear ‘opinion’ or ‘comment’ your interview guest has said. Start by taking your original reader story and removing a bit of the least relevant content.  Find a place about 3-4 lines into the story where your ‘actuality 1’ will fit within the content, then add a second actuality later in the story, like the sample script. Be sure the sentence before the actuality serves as a good 'lead-in' to the content of the actuality, including with the first one the interview guest's title and name.  Submit a script that reports about the event you discussed with your guest (about 12-14 lines), plus two 'sound bites' you select.  What you upload must be the script plus the two sound bite audio files as .MP3 files that fit within the script.

SCRIPT NAME: YourLastName Voicer Script.  If you're ready this week to record this 'voicer' / 'voice report', see below.  Final submission deadline for this 'pre-production' content is 10 pm Friday in the D2L folder, BUT if you decide to produce it this week the script and sound bites must be uploaded before you do production.   remember: actuality = sound bite

Reminder:  Any time you find a dead link, please immediately email Dr. DeMars to report. Do not expect a reply nights or weekends, but the problem is likely to be fixed promptly.

MID TERM PROFICIENCY 'Second Chance'  ** Reserve your slot here **

GRADING ISSUES:  IF YOU RECEIVED an email that you Did Not Pass, and then if you do not do this week's assigned follow-up work, and do it correctly, your final recorded grade will be between zero and 50, depending on the level of your work last week.  Doing this work instead gives you a chance for a passing grade.  EVERYONE WHO PASSED may also try for a grade improvement by also signing up and doing this Second Chance. 
THE LINK TO THE SCRIPTS AND FILES -----> ARE HERE.

1)  To do the Second Chance work, sign up for a time slot using the sign-up link provided above.  2)  Show up ON TIME at that time with a plan for already having the scripts and media files ready. Unlike last week's Proficiency Exam, they will NOT be on the desktop for you and the scripts will NOT be provided as hard copies. You will only have an hour in the production room, so you will benefit from downloading the files and taking them in with you on a flash drive to be able to sit down and immediately place the files on the desktop.  3)  Your production this time MUST correctly use the Multitrack means of assembling the media files and adding your voice track narration.  4) You must check in with the PA or Dr. DeMars in PAC 117 when you arrive and start, then you must check out with the PA or Dr. DeMars to have your session file reviewed before you leave.   5)  If you have not uploaded the .mp3 of the final production and had the session file reviewed and exited the room within one hour of your scheduled start time, this second chance will lead to no grade improvement on your Proficiency Exam.  6)  There will be production directions within the link to scripts and media files.  Be sure to read through them to know what is expected. It will be in your best interest to go into a production room and practice and/or schedule a time with a PA to ask questions and 'study' for this second chance. For people who know what they are doing and know how to use Adobe Audition, this work normally takes less than 15 minutes.

Dr. DeMars appointments for this week. These are here each week if you need to schedule a time to ask questions, get help, or review a recent test.
