A CPS Student's Green Screen Adventure

WCIU, The U is proud to announce that Green Screen Adventures is featuring the work submitted by Jeremie McLaurin from Jose de Diego Community Academy located in Chicago, Illinois.

Jeremie wrote "I'm Scared Of," which will air on Green Screen Adventures on Sunday, April 7 at 7 a.m. on Me-TV.

Green Screen Adventures, the nationally award-winning children's television show, selects writing and illustrations by students and brings them to life using story theatre, game shows, and puppetry.

To wit:

Me-TV can be seen on WCIU-TV 26.3, XFINITY 223/357, RCN 14, WOW 17/19, AT&T U-verse 23/136 and Dish/Direct 23.


More Green Screen Adventures from Jose de Diego students!


Jose de Diego is a literature and writing magnet school.


Jose de Diego is also a receiving school under the CPS school closings plan. If approved by the school board, De Duprey and Von Humboldt will be closed and their students sent to de Deigo, which would then get a new IB program.


Produced by Weigel Broadcasting Co. in Chicago, broadcast locally and seen nationally on Me-TV and ThisTV, the Emmy Award-winning Green Screen Adventures is an educational program with the goal of promoting literacy - child-by-child, school-by-school, incorporating as many children as possible.

Students in second through eighth grade are inspired to think of themselves as writers and illustrators when their stories are adapted on Green Screen Adventures. Students get the message that their words have power and that their voices are being heard.

Since its premiere in March 2007, works from more than 2,000 students in more than 350 episodes have been featured.

All recent episodes can be viewed on the website, www.greenscreenadventures.tv, which also provides dozens of writing prompts, teacher resources, and serves as a place for children to read stories written by other students, as well as submit works of their own.
