Podcasts

In my last post, I discussed the some pros and cons of the audio software Audacity.  While I did find it very frustrating, I was able to produce an excellent and useful artifact to use in my classroom.  I envision using podcasts like this at the beginning of each unit.  For example, a model day will go as follows: students will take a pretest on the unit so that I can find out their prior knowledge on the subject, next I will assign them a map activity so that they will become familiar with the region, then I will play the podcast to introduce them to the region as a whole.  This podcast on the Middle East will prove very useful in future classes.
