Assessment: To grade students just give them credit on actually attempting the project and putting effort and creativity into it. If the students are actually trying and working on their project then we should give them a passing grade.

Activity OverviewTarget Audience Students work together in groups or as a class to create a podcast about what they have learned about a specific subject in class. A script is created by the students and approved by the teacher before the podcast is created. The teacher must decide on the podcasting topic beforehand and edit and post the podcasts for the students. This activity can be altered to be appropriate for any grade level. For example, higher grade levels can be given more responsibility in creating the podcasts on their own while younger grades would recieve more help from the teacher. Goals/Objectives of Activity Students will be able to work together to organize thoughts on a topic and then create a podcast to convey their ideas in a clear, concise way. Podcasts will be posted electronically (such as on the school website) by the teacher for parents, students, and other faculty members to view.
