How To Tell Your Literacy Stories through Radio.
Martini, Michael A.
This paper offers advice to educators on how to tell their literacy stories through the medium of radio. It suggests educators examine their story idea closely and decide if radio is the best medium. It also suggests that educators should become familiar with the radio stations in the local market and get to know the personnel at the particular station--sending a story idea proposal to a particular person is the most effective way to get through. Additional advice offered in the paper includes: make the proposal easy to understand; do as much leg work as possible ahead of time; be patient and understanding if the reporter asks tough questions; and making follow-up calls. It concludes that with proper planning and skillful, precise distribution, educators can give their literacy story ideas the advantage they might need to catch the eye of a reporter. (RS)
