Creating a Persuasive Podcast

This lesson is intended to expand upon students' basic persuasive speaking and research skills in learning the literary progression of producing a two-minute persuasive podcast.

 


First, students research a local, state, national, or international issue of personal interest. Then students use multiple online news sources to research up-to-date information that helps them form and communicate their opinions about the issue; practice working with podcasting tools; and create and share a two-minute persuasive podcast in class. Note that, depending on your classroom plans, this lesson may have cross-curricular applications (e.g., in the areas of social studies, science, and economics). (from site)
