                                      Your Two Favorite Educators 

As Emily and Aubrey look back over the week they use their razor sharp wit to discuss podcasts. 

1.)  If you were able to record a podcast, what would be the content/topic?  

Aubrey: It would be a program about food and drink in literature.  Perfect world?  We would cook/create the actual dishes, drinks, and dinners while we discussed their role within the text.  You would be my sous chef.  See my creative podcast ideas below.

  • A Light in August: Field peas with molasses might look better than toothpaste but ultimately you won’t enjoy either.
  • The Great Gatsby: Mint juleps might be tasty but they won’t keep you from realizing your marriage is a sham.
  • All the King’s Men: Real politicians don’t drink orange pop.

Emily:  I am no one’s sous chef.  Final answer.

2. Similarly, do you have a catchy title?

Aubrey: No.  But I think it should be something like the following: Food Problems are Your Problems.  

Emily:  What about something like Feed Your Read?  You have to fit reading somewhere into the title.

3. What podcasts do you think teens are listening to?  What podcasts do you think they should be listening to?

Aubrey: Do they listen to podcasts?  Is this something I’ve missed?  I think they should be listening to This American Life and Radiolab.  Those podcasts are so smart, sad, humorous and thoughtfully produced.  I’m in awe of the intelligence and creativity.  I also think that students could easily checkout ITunes Podcast of the Day on Twitter.  There’s always something interesting there.

Emily:  I think that if they are listening to a podcast they are probably listening to something that is skill-related (like guitar playing) or is mindless, like a comedy show.  Adam Carolla is continually on the top ten list and, other than my brother, I can’t imagine who else listens to comedy podcasts

Recording Student Podcasts

The biggest concern I hear from colleagues about assigning students to create their own podcasts is that they don’t have the money to procure the materials.  While I do believe the best method to record a podcast is to use an actual MP3 recorder (described below), there are still many other alternatives that might be substantial options for you and your students given the financial constraints of your district.  Read more

Student-Created Podcast Project

I love the unpredictability of a class discussion. However, I don’t love the varying degrees of participation.  I have tried every gimmick in the book to ensure equal participation.  Yet, it never fails:  some students blend into the background and fail to make a comment in class because they are shy or are unable to overpower the more dominant voices in the discussion.  Having your students create and record their own podcast is a great way to solve all of these problems.

Podcasts to Use in the Classroom

When I was younger my parents used to always listen to talk radio (especially 700 WLW, a Cincinnati radio station) during long car trips.  At the time, I thought it was lame that I could identify Bill Cunningham’s voice, now it informs why I love listening to podcasts during my daily 1.5-hour long commutes.  They are nostalgic to me.  They remind me of my youth, while informing my future.  Because I’m an English teacher and love grading student writing every night for two hours, I rarely have time to indulge in topics that interest me.  I’m able to listen to news programs, book talks, psychology of art, and discussion of trends Read more

Podcasts Overview

Whenever I have an evaluation scheduled my first idea is to construct a lesson that centers on a discussion:  it isn’t teacher-centered; it allows students to be leaders in the classroom; it encourages divergent thinking; it causes students to explore what truly interests them, providing them choice and freedom.  What can an evaluator say about those things?  It reaches almost every objective of Danielson’s domains for teacher efficacy.

Or….not.
