Using the podcast technology, we had to think of a way to incorporate this into a lesson plan. I thought that since there is a good chance that I will teach mutidiscipline science classes at the high school level that I could take advantage of this. I would have my higher level classes (seniors and juniors) make mini-podcast discussions about a certain topic (ionic bonds, covalent bonds, polyatomic ions, etc.) that would take about 3 to 5 minutes on a podcast. They would do their lectures on the podcast for a grade, and the freshman classes could use the podcasts for studying...two birds, one stone!
NSET T: With this lesson plan I will be introducing the students to several standards: (1.) by allowing the students to be creative in their presentation and (5.) by engaging in their growth as a student and a professional by teaching a lesson.
