This fall, Michigan Radio’s Jennifer Guerra taught a four-week workshop for us in which middle school students put together their own radio documentaries. These students interviewed people, wrote up scripts, and went into the studio at Michigan Radio to record their pieces. The final product? This awesome documentary, which, if you must know, made me cry when it played on WCBN a few weeks back:

Many thanks to Jennifer Guerra, who promised to teach this for us again next fall. (Now that I’ve put it up here, she’s got no choice!) Thanks also to Angi Stevens, who always helps out a lot, but who helped out an extra super lot with this one.
