Dress Code – Socially Awkward #1

Socially Awkward is a podcast exploring the controversial issues that students care most about. In the first episode, I interview people around the school about how the dress code implemented at Carmel High School impacts them directly. Produced by Maddie Harden.

  1. The start of it was cool listing some issues that students care about. I like how you told people about some of your experiences with the dress code. It’s intetesting to me that the dress code is based more on girls than boys. Getting some teacher and parent stories was also cool.

  2. I LOVE the fact that you decided to talk about this topic! I really like that you have so many interviews with different people. However, the beeping at the beginning was very harsh and sharp, and was not pleasant to listen to. Also during the first teacher interview the audio faded in and out, which made listening to that segment very confusing. Also, at the end when you said that teachers needed to discipline students in a non humiliating way, I would have like some examples on what you think was humiliating or not. Overall I think that this was amazingly well written and said, so awesome job!

  3. This is a good topic choice, especially because it effects basically everyone. I found it interesting that all the people that have gotten dress coded are girls and most boys have never been dress coded. It is also kind of unfair that the dress code is mostly aimed towards girls. I do agree that we need boundaries and rules, but maybe it shouldn’t be so strict.

  4. I love the idea and creativity in this. I also really like all the interviewees and how you can get everybody opinions and words on the topic. The vocal delivery behind this project is also really good, it’s very clearly spoken and good rate. I also really love the questions they asked, it made it very interesting to learn/hear about.

  5. The intro of the podcast was very interesting and edited very well. The idea was very creative and relevant to the audience. Sometimes the music beds were too strong or too loud, but they were chosen in a way that helped the effect of the story. I like that the producer did an investigation type style of the actualities to come to the conclusion that the dress code is more focused towards girls.

  6. I really liked and enjoyed listening to this. The music beds that were used after a series of actualities really helped make the flow of the whole go really smoothly. The editing on this piece was really good, and the script was really well thought out. I liked how you showed the opinions and stories from not just the students, but also the parents and teachers as well. This was a really great piece.
