Research and writing leads to podcast production (photo gallery)

Students in Margie Roueche’s sixth grade class at Leona Libby Middle School recently produced a series of three podcasts exploring what it means to live a “good life”. Based on a unit in the Summit Learning platform, the sixth graders researched a well-known person, wrote scripts, and met specific goals and timelines.

“The podcasts are an innovative way for students to showcase their learning,” says Roueche. “The idea of research and writing leading to podcast production engaged some students who otherwise would not have been engaged.”

“Middle school students are very capable of showcasing their learning through meaningful digital products,” adds Chris Butler, classroom support teacher.
