Live from RYSS……it’s World Have Your Say!
May 21, 2013, the BBC’s Ben James, host of the international radio program, World Have Your Say, will broadcast live from RYSS. James and the BBC crew will be visiting Texas direct from London. During their Texas tour they will first stop in Austin before traveling to Houston. After their Houston stop, half of the crew will return to Austin, while the others visit Mexico. The Texas tour is designed to provide international coverage about immigration reform.
RYSS English-II teacher, Julia Blake, has tuned in to World Have Your Say during her classes, using the programs format and topics as catalysts to encourage timely and thought provoking discussions among her students. Ultimately, the students are challenged to articulate their thoughts, reactions, etc. in written form.
World Have Your Say’s visit to RYSS will be only the second time the program has ever visited and broadcast from a school. The only other school so honored was a secondary school in London.
RYSS is proud and honored to host BBC’s Ben James and his team from World Have Your Say. Another truly unique learning opportunity — only at RYSS!
