In this episode we go deep into the meaning of words and hear from ELA teacher Mary Beth Steven’s students as they dig into the etymology of vocabulary terms such as ‘kerfuffle’ and ‘hippopotamus’. Mary Beth tried podcasting with her students for the first time last year, using a Zoom brand audio recorder, and editing in Audacity. Her sixty-six students were split into groups of 4-5, created a total of 15 podcasts for their classroom series ‘One Word at a Time’. You can listen to the full series here. In this episode of the Student Podcast PODCAST, you will hear clips from the series, with reflections from Mary Beth on her experience creating this podcast series with her students.
