Another task done!

Posted: February 10, 2007 in EVO 2007 Tasks

I just added my idea for using podcasts to the 99 Ways list. The ones that are already there give me some good ideas, and I am anxious to read more ideas there as they are posted.

I just thought of something I am going to do with podcasts in the next week or so.  Taking the idea from the 99 Ways list, I will have students record brief stories about their hometowns. (My students are all from Mexico, so I have to make it a little more local.)  Then they will listen to each others’ stories and write summaries of them.  We have been working on summary writing, so this will be good practice.  Or we could record descriptions of our hometowns and then write compare/contrast essays.

As usual, I have lots of ideas.  I need to think them through a little more and see which of these variations — or what new variation — seems best as a starting point.  I’m excited!
