Extra Credit Podcasts…

In a continual effort to bring podcasting to my 7th graders while still keeping pace with our curriculum, I’ve decided to create an extra credit assignment.  The assignment is simple…write a report about any topic that we have discussed in class.  Record that project on the audacity software.  Add music.  Post podcast.

My vision is that every student would create a different topic and our curriculum will be represented by 100 podcasts.  I’m sure that will happen this school year.

I unveiled the extra credit project about a week ago and just yesterday a student has recorded the first podcast.   This student did his podcast on Adolph Hitler.

    I know you are probably looking for another project and you love Google Earth (which is loaded on all the library computers.) Come talk to me b/c i have a FANTASTIC idea, and it is one that could be a SS/LA project combined. W00T! I had such a good time at my library conference, and Im bringing back great stuff for teachers!

    And this is exactly why we want to keep you around Mr Granito! You are such a “think out of the box” kind of guy. Now share these great ideas with the rest of your team and grade!!
