Students will listen to the NPR Code Switch Podcast, a 4:02 audio called "Fighting Bias With Board Games". As students listen they will answer a series of listening comprehension questions (The transcript is also included if you are unable to play the audio or have students listen to this individually). I post this on Google Classroom and then we come together as a class to discuss it.

After answering the reading comprehension questions, students will edit and revise a body paragraph. There is a check list for revising and students should already have an understanding of what needs to be in a body paragraph (topic sentence, transition, citations, etc.)

Last, the critical thinking activity asks students to think of stereotype they would like to see challenged in a board game and come up with five. They will quiz a partner on their five adjective-noun matches.

Students will need access to headphones and the internet to access the podcast. You also have the option of playing it for the class as a whole (usually I will play it twice for them) OR the transcript is also attached in case technology fails!

Our new state standardized test in Florida includes podcast, so this is a great extra to add to your English class!
