Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

Media Guest Speaker, Monica Ortiz-Uribe

Monica Uribe is a Freelance Journalist for the National Public Radio. She came as a guest speaker to my Latinitas Multimedia class. The National Public Radio (NPR) is different from other stations. It uses actual sounds and voices to tell stories. It uses three main types of sounds: actualities, natural sounds, and tracks. Actualities are like characters in a story that talk. Natural sound would be a phone ringing or a dog barking. Tracks are the narrator of the story or the reporter. She showed us her special equipment that she uses in stories and other new reports. We then used recorders to try and interview a partner. She gave us tips on how to get really good recordings. Three things you really have to pay attention to are the mic placement, the way you are holding the recorder, and how you have to wear the headphones.
