Gossip Public Service Announcement
Our wonderful counselor, Ms. Kinsella, noticed that gossip is causing some ISB students pain and making even more feel uncomfortable. She asked this class to create a public service announcement (PSA) about gossip in a way that discourages people from spreading gossip.
Working in groups, we create a set of PSA’s to give to Ms. Kinsela. She will select her favorite(s) and use them in advisories, her office and maybe at a whole school assembly. Nice!
A public service announcement (PSA) is a 60-90 second video that highlights a problem, shows examples and then provides a call to action (solution(s).
