María Guadalupe López Arroyo Podcast series project
Listen to all the podcasts the teams made and ask the students to listen to the other teams’ podcasts. Have the rubric with you to mark the podcast series. Ask the students to listen to their classmates’ podcasts with the rubric at hand. Ask them to rate their classmates’ work, but remind them that they will have to justify their rating and explain why they gave their classmates those marks. l) Final discussion After everyone has listened to everyone else’s podcasts, get together with the group and discuss what they learned from the experience. You can ask the following questions: What did you learn about slavery? Is slavery what you thought it was? Did
the research help? How did you feel when preparing and recording your podcasts? Why? What did you think of your classmates’ work? Was it easy to read about such a difficult topic? Had you recorded a podcast before? Would you like to record a podcast again? If so, what topic(s) would you like to talk about? If not, why?
