INTRODUCE DIRTY JOBS ASSIGNMENT AND LISTENING ASSIGNMENT

Assignments due next week:

1. Assignment: Work on your website. Be prepared to share it with the class for our first blog check next week.

2. Spend ten minutes listening: Sit down for ten minutes–anywhere you please. Jot down the sounds you hear. Which of these sounds is part of the foreground?  Which are parts of the background?  Note the high-frequency sounds.  Note the low-frequency sounds. Go to the home page and find the post called “Listening Assignment.”  In the Comments section below the post, write down what you heard.

3. Assignment:  Audio Project #1 – Record a conversation with someone with a dirty/interesting/unusual job … a narrative that would interest the intended audience–a 10-year-old.  Interview your source and gather natural sound using a voice recorder and take his or her photo as a horizontal.

This is due next week.
