I created these materials for use in an elective course I created/teach called “Podclass.” In the course, we study podcasts and their episodes as our texts, rather than using traditional print sources.
For this unit, I primarily wanted to focus on the craft and structure of podcasts. While there are many podcasts that would be excellent for this focus, I chose the podcast Mobituaries as it is educational, well-produced, school appropriate (for the most part), and is an often-recommended favorite of mine.
The following materials are included in a PDF format and are named/numbered in the order in which they are meant to be used:
1. SAMPLE Unit Calendar
2. Unit Intro Slides created with content from the podcast website
3. Episode Analysis Sheet
4. Episode Formula Assessment
5. Mini-Mobit Pitch Project including rubric
