- Identify possible podcast subjects based on brainstorm
- Identify three (one primary, two secondary) credible sources upon which to base your podcast.
A podcast is a newscast, broadcast digitally. If you’ve ever heard “It’s 3 p.m. the news is next” you’ve heard a newscast. I use the terms newscast and podcast interchangeably. You are going to write short (less than 3 minute) podcast, about a historical subject from between 1800 and 2000 CE.
Answer the following questions:
- What region, city, or geographic feature of MN do you find most interesting?
- What Minnesota food do you find interesting?
- What Minnesota person have you found interesting?
- What Minnesota fresh water topic have you found interesting?
- If you had to be a pre-2000 CE Minnesotan, what job outside the elite (no railroad magnates) would you want and why?
- What question have you asked in your Reflections that might make a good podcast?
Using Normandale library databases or other credible institutions, such as museums, find three possible sources for a podcast topic. Using Zot Bib, generate a bibliography for your three sources.
Students receive one point for each Brainstorm question answered and each source provided, up to three sources for a total of 10 points [Question 5 has two questions.]
