When DMAC and SuperLeaders’ powers combine…

…The Academies at Anacostia High School’s Digital Media Arts’ first podcast is produced! The first episode is about the new makings of the academies at Anacostia. Anacostia High has gone through a series of changes recently. The school’s system has been restructured, as well as the school building. With all the changes going on at The Academies of Anacostia , PMC fellows Brittany Clemons, Danielle Scruggs, and Social Worker Mr. Turner discussed everything from the new uniform policy to the negative perception of Anacostia High. This is the first time a lot of the students participated in a podcast and while some were shy at first, by the end of the session the students were engaged in a heated debate.

Next week, we will continue the discussion and take on other topics such as relationship abuse and bullying.
