5th had their 2nd lesson of 7 on "BE ENTREPRENEURIAL".


2nd and 3rd reviewed the lessons from the sport agents, reviewed the information on the mixer for the test Friday, watched a VIDEO about behind the scenes of a TV station (1st 6min or s0), and started the project below.


Groups of 4 or 5.


1 – TV announcer:  Begin with “Good evening and welcome to FHPH news at 5.  We begin with a story ….” 

2 – News producer:  Cues the start with hand held and saying 3 2 1 go.

            Cues the shift to the on scene reporter with “10 seconds     5 4 3 2 1 go”

            Cues the shift back to the TV announcer with “10 seconds   5 4 3 2 1 go” 

            Can also give 10 second warnings like “30 seconds to go”  “20 seconds to go”.

3 – On scene reporter:  Begin with “Thank you, [TV announcer]. “

4 – “Victim”?? AND Teleprompter??: 

5 – (???) Teleprompter/weatherperson: 


GRADE (20 point test grade):

Total time for 4 person team is 2:00 +/-5sec.  Total time for 5 person team is 2:45+/-5sec.

Time for on scene reporter is 45sec +/-3sec.

Transitions should not be rushed.

The script for the TV announcer must be written/typed out and given to Mr. Yahr.

The script for the TV announcer must be written/typed LARGE on computer or hand-written on papers.  Teleprompter advances on-screen powerpoint or changes hand-written papers.

The on scene reporter will be reporting on something goofy – the sky falling or Godzilla in Mobile or an alien sighting or whatever.  The scenario and basic idea must be written down and approved.  It does not need to be written down verbatim.

TV announcer and on scene reporter must have a collared shirt and tie.  I can provide.

SMILES – TV announcer, on scene reporter, and meteorologist must smile at least 4 times each.

Must have 2nd report to make by the TV announcer once the on scene report is concluded.

4 – person team:  Make sure on scene reporter does not need to talk to the victim at the very beginning or very end of the on scene report so they have time to transition from/to being teleprompter.

5 – person team:  Weatherperson must talk for 30sec +/-3sec.  Map must be drawn on board with cities.  Weatherperson can’t look at board, but must point at it from memory and/or with cues from producer/teleprompter.  Must mention at least 4 cities and point at them.
