In this episode hear a podcast created by a student club from Eleanor Roosevelt High School in Eastvale, CA. The students examine the concept of academic identity, where students become so wrapped up in academic achievement that it starts to define them. Teacher Frank Mata was the advisor to the club and says because students were not being graded on this project he thought they were freed creatively. This is Mata’s first podcasting project with students and he sought help from two passionate teachers in his district who co-host an EdChat podcast.
