In the Classroom

There are a few ways to leverage insights from the podcast. You can use podcast episodes to captivate students' attention and stimulate interest in various topics related to their day-to-day life as a high schooler. It would provide an excellent opportunity to build community and create student agency by pairing podcasts with thought-provoking questions, promoting lively classroom discussions and critical thinking. Assign projects where students create multimedia presentations or infographics based on podcast themes, allowing them to deepen their understanding and apply knowledge creatively. Considering many of the topics about graduating and insights from new grads, you could : form small discussion groups where students listen to episodes about new grads and their future plans. Have them discuss their own aspirations, fears, and expectations. If possible, invite recent graduates to speak to the class about their experiences post-high school, aligning their stories with podcast themes.
