REPORT WITH ORIGINAL TUNES, CUT & EDIT

Brief summary of activity

This activity will start with an editorial conference where the topics will be chosen. The participants will be divided into groups and work on a report (there should be an emphasis on going through all the stages of the preparation process). The report should include different interviews, possibly polls, while using different sources of information. Its structure should be built according to the topic selected. The reports will be listened to, evaluated and discussed by the instructor and the participants.The participants will go to a scheduled event and each of them will find three to five different points of view. Then they will define and record them and present them to all. During the evaluation the instructor has to check the relevancy of each point of view. The aim of this activity is that the participants develop an ability to judge the relevancy of an event and its public interest.

Recommended max. number of participants and trainees to trainers ratio

10 to 11 to 4 for vision impaired/blind participants or trainees with learning difficulties.

Risk and possible adaptation

For Vision Impaired/Blind participants and trainees with learning difficulties it is possible to propose a mock event and ask them to construct a report from this imaginary event. E.G. they are at the opening of an art exhibition, a music concert... but there is a demonstration outside. They have to report back to the studio/do an interview/ from different perspectives

Analysis and evaluation

The group will discuss the selection of sources and the content of the reports.

Scheduling

During research and interviewing.
