Bartlett High School


Welcome to Coach Steinbrecher's Website!

I look forward to continuing my pursuit of life-long learning with you all!

I currently teach three Intro to Communication classes, one Film II class, and one Film III class.

In addition, I serve as an Athletic Director for Bartlett High School along with Coach Joey Nesbit.

This year, students have been divided into 3 groups:
- Hybrid Group A: attend school Mon/Wed & work independently on Tues/Thurs/Fri
- Hybrid Group B: attend school Tues/Thurs & work independently on Mon/Wed/Fri
- Hybrid Group C: attend Zoom class on Tues/Fri (following bell schedule - see "Helpful Links" tab)
*My Zoom link is posted on Curve under the "Class Intro" tab.
A weekly agenda will be posted on Curve by Monday morning each week.
ATTENDANCE INFORMATION: ALL STUDENTS must log into Curve and answer the attendance questions for each of your classes every day. This can be found in the folder titled, "Daily Attendance" at the top, once you select the course. 1st period must be entered by 7:15a. You may go ahead and enter attendance for the rest of your classes then. The deadline to enter your attendance for the day is 1:20p.
Curve will be the main platform utilized, where all assignments & instructions are posted. Instructions are located in the "Helpful Links" tab.

Student Commercial Example #5

Watch out, Geico--and all other 15 sec, quick-hitting, witty radio comes, Bike-O. You may have to listen to this one two or three times.

Student Commercial Example #4

Zap-Me-Up! Have trouble waking up for school? Well, no more with this revolutionary (and scary) new product. 31 secs

Student Commercial Example #3

Heartbreaker Industries--yes, this is the one I played in class. Dark humor, I realize, may not be your thing, but these students had perfect pacing and the perfect background song for this oh-so wonderful subject of the break-up. 45 secs.

Student Commercial Example #2

This student radio commercial spoofs the "As-Seen-On-TV" type of products. Students pull it off with over-the-top voices & quick pacing. Pay attention to the sound effects used, too. 61 secs

Student Commercial Example #1

This is a 60 sec radio commercial (no video) for a fictitious video game. Very creative concept, multiple voices used. Student Group of 2 people
