Thanks to a grant through the Benedum Foundation and the Rural Arts Collaborative, Bricolage worked with our students to write radio shows about social studies concepts such as the Gold Rush, Oregon Trail, and Westward Expansion. Students not only worked on the script of each show, but they also provided the voice acting and sound effects as well through the use of Foley sound techniques.
