The issue introduces students to the Golden Age of Radio, a time when people across the country would gather around their radios and listen to comedy, drama, music, and news—a time when they gained a stronger sense that they were part of the same community.
The lesson plan transforms students from radio listeners to radio writers. The students create and produce their own radio shows that, when finished, are performed for the class.
