In this episode you’ll hear from Shalini Rao, a 5th Grade Teacher formerly at the Park School in Brookline, Massachusetts. Shalini used interview-style podcasting as a way to capture immigrant stories and bring the community into her classroom. Her students listened to high quality public radio stories as models for their work, and used GarageBand for editing and recording. Listen to two different student podcast samples and hear Monica point out great tips & tricks to podcasting alongside Shalini’s reflections for future podcast lessons.
