For this 3.5 star assignment, I did the Reverse Audio Quiz assignment. I did this assignment because I thought it’d be interesting to have a segment of our radio show where it’s like a game during the show and people must guess what superhero theme song we are playing backwards.
The Character Bird Call Assignment is worth 3.5 stars. I decided to do this assignment because I thought it could be a good way to introduce the character we’re going to use in our radio show, Jane Smith.
This assignment was worth 4.5 Stars. I used the song “My Adidas” by Run-D.M.C because I thought it fit well with the idea that Jane Smith, the character we will be using for our radio hour has super speed.
I decided to create this advertisement for our radio show because I believe that we are planning to use Megan’s character as our interviewee. She has super speed and telepathy.

We came up with the idea of doing a superhero style tattoo assignment and I’m glad we did because it’s super creative. It also showcased many of our classmates talent.

My superhero, Safety Stan, is known to be the best crossing guard around. He can teleport to and fro to help his community cross the street. He loves his stop sign and enjoys helping others.

I decided to use Popeye as my example because the only way my parents could get me to eat spinach when I was little was by reminding me that Popeye got big and strong because of it.
