Bridge to Practice

  • Have students create their own "Classroom Rules" podcast.  It will give students ownership of the rules and will allow them to use their own voice or interpretation of the rules.

  • Use this format at the beginning of the school year to have students create a podcast introducing themselves to you and to their classmates.  It could be extended to a project that is done schoolwide.

  • The possibilities of creating podcasts is endless and can be done across any content area.
