Last week we used VoiceBoard for one-minute elevator pitches. Since some students had trouble as I indicated in my last post, we used a part of the Studio Hour that is a co-req of FPA since all the equipment was there and STMs to help. Even going this far, there were students who sat in the room, headsets on, and didn't complete the assignment - looks like a zero for each of them. Not knowing what to say at this point didn't work since the assignment was due two weeks ago. If they do not know how to sell themselves on an interview......... Remember that this was really a draft before we spent time on task; I wanted them to begin practice and this was a low stakes assignment -- did they do it was what I was looking for. Next week we begin real interview practice and they we will have video interview simulations. I wonder how many will not show up for class that day. I'll keep you posted on some of the other audio prep activities we will complete.
I am planning a cross posting with my internship seminar. The seminar is bi-weekly so I am looking for a common time to tie the two activities together -- needs to fit the syllabus for both classes to be vested in the assignment.
Today is their midterm administered through Blackboard. I know there will be problems!
