RadioWorks & VideoWorks are curriculum-based classes that count toward English credit. RadioWorks classes provide students with the tools to create and produce their own radio programming. For over 10 years, VideoWorks has been a curriculum that integrates English Language Arts and the Technology Education Standards. This initiative was designed to meet the
New York State standards for public education. VideoWorks is a hands-on media literacy workshop for students in 9th, 10th and 11th grade who share their views and experiences through video presentation. Students produce documentaries, original shorts and news programming.
