For the past few weeks students from sixth grade teacher Janelle Amperse's class wrote and filmed their own news segments using Apple iPads.
Emerson's young newscasters then filmed the rest of their program in Channel 26's studio.
"These kids have put it all together with a little help, but they did a lot of the work," explained Ms. Amperse, who added that her students learned marketable job skills in the process.
"First of all, they improved their listening and speaking skills. They've written their own scripts as well. Just the fact that they were able to create this own their own is an example of technology in the classroom and Common Core Standards," she said. "My kids can go on to become newscasters, journalists, camera operators, editors...there's a ton of careers they can now think about pursuing."
Alton Patterson wrote his own script introducing the news program's weather and he'd be the first to tell you it wasn't easy.
"I found it hard to come up with the right words. My script was about half a page and it took about two days to get it right," he said.
Weather girl Breezy Simon not only announced what the week's weather would be like, she also had to find out by herself.
"I did research on the weather for the last week of September and it looks very sunny, very hot," she said.
Breezy also pointed out that besides the hard work of producing a news program, there are very important rules while on the set.
"If you are taping the show, there has to be quiet on the set."
