Students create their own TV spots for charity in digital media class



ON THE AIR—Ruth Kritz, eighth-grade teacher at A.E. Wright Middle School in Agoura Hills, works with Spencer Salter on a television public service announcement that he made in the school’s Advanced Digital Media class. Before the academic year ended the students in the class showed their short PSAs. Each student also donated $25 to the charity of their choice via Charity Checks, an Agoura-based nonprofit organization that runs charitable literacy projects in schools nationwide. Donations went to groups such as the Agoura Animal Shelter, Fender Music Foundation, Red Cross and Santa Monica Mountain Conservancy. Spencer’s PSA was about the conservancy.
