"Raider News" continues as our flagship news magazine show now styled after "60-Minutes" or HBO's "RealSports." Our student reporters will conduct interviews and create packages that highlight all the fantastic goings-on here at WHS.
The two new series that will launch as part of this curriculum, were both conceived and developed by our students, from the ground up.
"Ask A..." is a panel-based talk show styled after "The View" or "The Talk." Our student panel will debate and discuss issues and situations facing them here at WHS and throughout their lives. They will also pose questions to special guests (students, faculty, or support staff) who will join the panel to provide insight from different perspectives.
"How to Survive" is also a panel-based round table talk show series. Each episode will be dedicated to acting as a stand alone "Survival Guide" to various facets of the high school experience. The student panel will offer tips and tricks to matriculating members of the different class years through the lens of their experiences from Freshman through Senior year. They too will pose questions to special guests (students, faculty, or support staff) who will join the panel to provide insight to key aspects of each year in a high school career.
