"Podcasts as Literature", a course for high school English teachers only, will take place on voicethread.com. Your instructor will talk about teaching podcasts like This American Life. You'll also see some assignments where students created a podcast instead of writing an essay. One slide includes a long list of great podcasts to use in the classroom. You can then present your own research or share your experiences with podcasts. After viewing at least three other presentations from other high school English teachers, you'll have the chance to create a new lesson. Upon completion of the course, you will receive a certificate of completion with the equivalent of 7 professional development hours.
