Enhance students’ listening skills and introduce them to a new form of literacy with podcasts. This American Life is a weekly public radio program and podcast. This activity addresses the two-part broadcast titled “Harper High School.” These episodes recount reporters’ visits to this Chicago high school where in 2012 alone, 29 recent and current students were shot. Students are introduced to an environment where everyone is a member of a gang simply by living in a particular neighborhood. They meet the courageous students, families, faculty, and staff that help each other survive and cope.
