David Green is the third grade teacher you wish you had in elementary school. For ten years, David has taught eight and nine year olds at the North Shore Country Day School in Winnetka, Illinois how to produce radio stories — short lists, audio tours, documentaries, and more. Frankly, what David accomplishes with “3rd Grade Audio” is remarkable.
On this edition of HowSound, David talks about working with young people and his process for teaching kids how to be curious with microphones. Along the way, we hear stories about drawing, getting old, stuffed animals, and what you should do when you get a magnet stuck up your nose. “3rd Grade Audio” is proof that we need more youth radio on the air!
Hooray for youth radio
