Students choosing the Podcast Episode format for their research projects will write, record, and edit a 15-minute discussion of their selected dystopian media. Students should consider this a formal presentation — it must be well-planned and organized — although the actual style may sound more casual.
For the podcast episodes, you should be able to upload the MP4 file to a cloud storage service. You will not be able to submit the actual audio file through Brightspace; instead, you will need to provide the public sharing link for the audio file so I can download it.
Submitted podcast episodes must meet all of the following in order to be considered complete:
- Be completed on time.
- Demonstrate significant research into the topic dystopia.
- Demonstrate insightful analysis.
- Include at least 10 minutes of you presenting information to the audience.
- Be clearly written, well-organized, and clearly presented.
- Include a Show Notes document listing any attributions for Creative Commons media and ALL source material referenced in the episode in APA format.
Please note that these examples, submitted for previous iterations of this class, may not meet all of the expectations listed above.
