New Podcasts on the Way

This week, we're working on our Social Studies project for the second trimester. Students are working in two-person teams to write, record, and produce a podcast about one of the five chapters we've studied in the past five weeks.

The teams were given eight choices, ranging from radio documentaries to imaginary quiz shows to a "walking tour" of Colonial Williamsburg.

Students must finish them this week in class. We'll be working on them each day. They will each present their podcast at their next exhibition, which will take place the first week of March.

Not sure what I'm talking about with all this social studies podcast mumbo jumbo? Check out the GCast player in the sidebar of the blog. Click "POSTS" to see a list of the ones we've made. There are quite a few from our work with Michigan history back in fourth grade.
