Garageband Radio Script

Overview: If you were actually going to promote a business on the radio you would not just go to the radio station and speak into the microphone. You would need a script to make your actual announcement sound professional.

Your task: You will create a three-paragraph radio announcement script to promote a business of your choice. If you ever started your own business, what would it be? Wonder if you could work for yourself someday instead of someone else? What kind of business would you want to own? You will use the worksheet on page 2 to brainstorm your ideas. After you have completed the organizer, you will create your announcement before using it to create your radio commercial using Garageband.

Go to page two and complete the organizer.

After Mr. Roemer approves your organizer go to page 3 and complete your script.

After you complete your script, Mr. Puhala will read and verbally comment on it. Once the script is approved you will then be allowed to produce your radio commercial using Garageband.
