After going through examples of audio slide shows in class, I wanted to look for some of my own. I hit the web trying to find some of the best audio slides shows to help me get an idea of how this whole thing really works. I found this award-winning audio slide show called “Fixing D.C’s Schools: One School’s Struggle.” This slide show follows students and facility at Calvin Coolidge Senior High, a high school in the D.C area. It won 1st place in The Best of Photo Journalism in 2009, a project of the National Press Photographer’s Association. I watched the “Failing Jonathan” segment and I immediately noticed how the narration matched up with the pictures. This concept is something we talked about in class, and this slide show does it seamlessly. The possibility to give a voice to the voiceless is a journalistic golden nugget, and audio slide shows allow that to happen in a powerful yet concise way. The struggles that students all over the country face are reflected¬†in the hardships the educators and students experience during their time at Calvin Coolidge Senior High. During high school, I knew kids like Jonathan, so I found his story moving and easy to relate to.
