Tim Dzurko teaches a class called broadcasting.  They make the monthly “Jr. Paw Productions”.  Ever heard of it?  Each of the students work in a group on a particular segment, and they each have a certain duty.

Some edit videos, some take videos and some even broadcast and host the monthly show.  The team works to make one big film, like a nightly newscast, but it covers news from the whole month.  Dzurko has been doing this for three years, and it’s one of the most hands on classes student can take in ninth grade.
