Podcast Assignment

For a curriculum that focuses on teaching the 21st century, an appropriate assignment would be to have students create their own podcast. Although some students might be uncomfortable with speaking on tape, the fact that it is just audio eliminates the nervousness that comes with standing in front of a classroom. Podcasts have become particularly popular in the past few years and they are an innovative way to make an assignment interactive. Based on the texts I have introduced in the previous posts and among the many other texts that students can read, there are numerous issues and topics that can be studied, researched and talked about in these podcasts. The idea for this came from a class I took in college and I enjoyed being able to pick my own topic and research and then have a conversation about it. It almost didn’t seem like an assignment. The rubric and assignment sheet that is attached was taken from the class I took in college.
