6-8 CTE: Entrepreneurship Podcasting
Student groups will have the opportunity to share the knowledge they develop about the entrepreneurial process and business leadership through the creation of a periodic Podcast.
|Driving Question / Scenario||How can I create a Podcast to demonstrate and share knowledge of Entrepreneurship and Leadership?|
|Project Summary||Student groups will have the opportunity to share the knowledge they develop about the entrepreneurial process and business leadership through the creation of a periodic Podcast.|
|Estimated Time||Each Podcast should take approximately 45 minutes to prepare and receive feedback and 45 minutes to produce, edit, and publish. Podcasts will be published approximately biweekly during the semester.|
|Materials / Resources||Students will need a microphone for recording, their Podcast outline and script, an iPad or Chromebook as a recording device, and software for editing and publishing.A list of possible topics for Podcasts can be found here.Team Member Roles can be found here.Podcasts are to be recorded as a means of sharing knowledge regarding the steps of the entrepreneurial process, as well as the documents that support it. Individual lessons use information found in Warren Buffett’s How to Start Your Very First Business as well as students’ own participation in the NCMS school-based business.|
|Ask||What are the ingredients for a good, informative podcast?|
|Imagine||Students will brainstorm various formats of presenting their information, such as humorous, interview, newscast, etc. and will also brainstorm the Top 5 points that they wish to include in their Podcast. The team will decide on the format that their Podcast will take, as well as the Top 5.|
|Plan||Students will outline their Podcast using their Top 5. They will gather the information needed to write their script. Teams will then write their complete script for their Podcast and submit it for approval. Students may use this outline template for planning or make up their own,|
|Create||Teams will utilize their completed script and record their Podcast. They will preview the recording for any necessary edits, and share the Podcast with another team for feedback.|
|Improve||Teams will perform necessary edits and publish their Podcasts.|
|Closure / Student Reflections||Teams will serve as the “test run” audience for each other’s Podcasts and will provide constructive feedback. A feedback form for teachers and students can be found here. Student teams should use the feedback to reflect and improve their future Podcasts.|
|Possible Modifications / Extensions||Modifications may include allowing students to perform a speech on entrepreneurship and leadership topics, or to write an essay instead of requiring the full Podcast process.Extensions may include having students utilize the same process for Podcasts to be applied to creating a vlog about entrepreneurship and leadership. Students could use Touchcast to create their vlog entries.|
