Resource Ira Glass's Manifesto
Ira Glass's Manifesto
  • Created By melissa
  • Description:
    From the guru himself. This manifesto includes what it was like for Ira to struggle to become good at radio, what makes a great story, and what is not a story.

    I recommend not having students read this all the way through. Instead the teacher should read it and pick small parts to share with students to focus their study.
  • Purpose:
    This provides great perspective for students as they embark on this project-journey. It is good for students to understand that their first idea is not always the best, and for them to be okay with scraping an idea and moving on to the next one.
  • Targets: Teacher
  • Standards:
