Final Project: Presentation to Students

Blog Post 1: Introduction to Washington, D.C. Podcast

Letter from the Visitors Bureau!

To help you get started, I have listed some activities below!
I would like you to:

a) Locate Washington D.C. on this United States Map:
(Click on map to Enlarge it)

b)I would like you to click here to listen to this Sample Mini-Podcast

As you listen to this podcast, ask yourself:
*How does the podcaster use language to create imagery of the monument in your mind?

*What kind of historical facts does the podcaster incorporate?

c) Next, work with your group and choose a historical site (from the list below), for which your group will create a mini-podcast tour.

Vietnam Veterans Memorial
The White House
Washington monument
United States Capitol
United States Supreme Court
Arlington National Cemetery
Fords Theatre

When your group has decided, one person from your team must post the group's choice in the comments section of this post.

WORK FAST! - Selection of Historical Site is based on a first come-first served basis.
