3.1.3. Objectives Students will be asked to produce a podcast on a current event. Students will have the opportunity to select whichever current event they would like to research/present on. Students will need to explain the current event and why we (the class) should be interested in this issue. Students will be expected to complete 5 current event podcasts throughout the year. A rotation schedule will be in place to determine which students are expect to hand in current events on which dates. The current event podcasts that the students produce will be played for the rest of the class. I aim to play one podcast before each social studies class (throughout the year) once the first rotation is complete. This assignment will help students become familiar with the issues that are currently happening our the world today, as well as why we as Canadians should be concerned about them. Producing a podcast will allow students and opportunity to expand their technological knowledge and the ability to present their new social studies knowledge in an engaging way.

3.1.4. Content Grade 6 Social Studies Global Interdependence

3.1.5. Method of Instruction Pre instruction of the criteria to be included in the podcast as well as how to design a podcast will be delivered in a lecture style. Students will then have freedom to select a current event and present it through a podcast. Giving students the freedom to select the current event as well as the freedom to design their podcast as they wish is a student lead instruction method.
