Podcasts as practice and presentation

Podcasts give English language learners a nonthreatening way to practice English.

In my experience, podcasting (like other digital modalities) often motivate English language learners to extend their new language skills as they tackle complex subjects. Working with a local not-for-profit group called “Need in Deed” that helps students apply academic skills with solving social issues, my fourth-graders decided to investigate water pollution and contamination. In the process, they conducted research, wrote scripts, and recorded audio broadcasts for publication on the Internet.

Below are links to four podcasts we created for their water pollution unit study.
