Writing in the Social Sciences: Creating a Podcast in the Style of "A Thousand Things to Talk About" (by Guillermo Rodríguez)
In this project, students will first research a number of social science articles on an issue that is important to them. Then they will write a 500-word transcript to be developed into a podcast. A successful transcript and eventual podcast will:
- Highlight a recent research finding in 500 words;
- Adopt an engaging tone that entertains and informs;
- Include a bibliography cited in APA style;
- Be free from grammatical and mechanical errors.
Students will take on the role of a social science scholar, composing and recording a three to five-minute audio file for submission.
