MATERIALS • Computers/devices with internet and internet access • "Podcast Episode Rubric" Handout ACTIVATE: POPULAR PODCASTS Inform students that today's lesson is all about podcasting. Ask students how they would define what a podcast is. A podcast is an audio show, much like a radio show except available to stream or download online. Podcasts can be made to entertain, tell a story, or educate an audience. Ask students what podcasts they listen to (or have listened to in the past). On the board, create a mind map of all the various podcasts students know of and their genres. Choose a podcast episode to listen to together as a class (see list below). After listening, dis- cuss the purpose of the podcast, the format of the episodes (interview style, storytelling, story re-enactment etc.…), the special effects used and the host's personality (ie. how does the host's personality connect with the audience?) Examples of podcasts created by Indigenous people include: Lesson Plan CREATE TO LEARN
