During Tip Off a few students and I helped work a booth. We used this booth to pass out flyers and stickers to help spread our name into the local area. This let people from neighboring schools (Bath, Shawnee, and LCC) hear about our company and what we do. We used the stickers to advertise to people in the stands, considering there were at least 1,000 people at each game. 1,000 people per game and 4 games over the course of 2 nights makes about 4,000 people hearing about our company. This helps us spread our name throughout the community and get us more clients.
We have been recording radio advertisements that we will be playing on T102 and 1150 WIMA starting the 3rd of January. This took many recordings and RErecordings. We took many tapes to get the perfect recording, and then we had to figure out how to add slight music into the background. Overall, I learned quickly how to record and finish a radio ad. Finishing includes adding the music, saving, and sending the audio file to the station.
Choose Your Own Textbook:
When Mr. Suter proposed that we choose a book in order to learn and better ourselves, I thought it was a great idea! A typical classroom setting would follow set guidelines with all students using the same boring textbook to learn from. This, to me, does not work like it is set to. Students all learn differently and at different paces. Because of this, I thought that it would work best to have the Grit9 class individually choose their own book. This gave us the chance to look into our own interests and us these books for the betterment of ourselves.
For me personally, I was interested in bettering myself in a way that will literally get me out of my head and into my life. I chose my book for solely because I know my biggest weakness is being too hard on myself. I am my biggest criticizer, and for this reason, I chose a book that would help me grow from this and better myself to seek full potential. I hope to learn a lot from this book, and use it to learn from my past mistakes and grow from it.
