Curious City in 6th Grade

The sixth grade students in Ms. Cody’s class are currently working on research projects in the style of WBEZ’s Curious City. This long-term group project is focused around a question relating to the city of Chicago, with a culminating podcast detailing their researched answers. Students recently had the opportunity to work with Derek John, a freelance journalist, editor and producer, on their Curious City projects. Mr. John walked students through his latest Curious City piece for WBEZ, and offered advice as they begin the writing and recording process in the coming weeks.
