Senior Students Interview Local Businesses About Impact Of COVID-19 For Class Project

Upper School Business & History Teacher Collin Libassi recently had his senior students do a project where they interviewed someone with a business about the impact of COVID-19.

"I wanted then to find a local business and interview someone at that business on how things are going," Libassi said. 

The students then turned that interview into a four to five-minute "podcast" interview.

As a part of the assignment, the podcast needed to have a theme that fits within one or two of the four business functions:

  • HR story? 
  • Finance story? 
  • Marketing story? 
  • Operations story? 

It even could be a combination of more than one.

Libassi also said he wanted the podcasts to have a theme. Was it a cash flow podcast or a chain management one?

Students were also given different examples of podcasts to listen to in order to get ideas. 

The podcast was then edited, containing a mix of the students' narration and audio from the interviewee. 

The finished projects were then submitted on April 22. 

Here are three examples of the students' work:
