Tornadoes of 2011: Birmingham Edition
The students and community of Birmingham, Alabama and in particular Wilkerson Middle School were affected by the vicious storms that raged through Alabama at the end of April. The students of Wilkerson Middle School needed an outlet for their feelings of fear, anger, sadness, and confusion. This podcast provided them with not only that outlet, but also an opportunity to express themselves in regards to their safety, and the survival of their community. As the comments are sometimes off the cuff and completely child created, there is no transcript, only the mention of the student's names.
