Teacher Talk: Building Archival Knowledge through Podcasts and Documentaries
January 25 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm CSTFree
As English teachers, we are known for using books to make connections to universal themes and current events. Our classroom doesn't have to be limited to written texts to make these connections. In this session, we will look at how podcasts and documentaries can be used to supplement our texts in order to increase our students' engagement and archival knowledge.
