Have you discovered the power of podcasts yet? It’s easier than ever to find, subscribe and listen to literally thousands of podcasts on every topic from news, arts, business, comedy, education, politics, sports, technology, music, health, spirituality, hobbies, and more. Podcasts allow us to hear the voices of so many different people, and not only can you access viewpoints both alike and different from your own, but also you have knowledge at your fingertips and the ability to learn new things. Podcasts are a very important form of media that should be valued now and in the years to come. Now with no prep for you, you and your students can join the movement quickly, easily, and purposefully with these podcast worksheets for analysis. Add a paired podcast to your current unit of study, have students listen and respond for a sub lesson, or just conduct one of the activities as a stand-alone lesson.
The questions and tasks on these graphic organizers correlate directly with not only CCSS anchor standards, but also with higher-level thinking analysis skills on topics such as vocabulary, reliable narrator, content, comparing and contrasting texts, and more. They enable you to scaffold the listening process and take students step by step deeper into the text. The sheets can be used in isolation, or you could use several for one text depending on what your needs are! The best thing about podcast analysis worksheets such as these is that they work with any podcast you have for any level of secondary students in any subject!
Your students will love that they are beautifully designed and online. You will love that your students are engaged successfully in discussing texts. Your admin will love that students are thinking critically and meeting standards.
