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.

  1. 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!!

  2. This was awesome! I hope the student enjoyed doing this.

  3. 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!
