Podcasts In The Classroom: Score! Learn More About Credit
After more than 400 teachers expressed interest in bringing podcasts into the classroom, we decided to build out a ready-to-use activity to fulfill that desire. This week's activity (you will be asked to Make a Copy when you click on the link) revolves around the topic of credit and has incorporated 2-3 minute audio excerpts from the NGPF Podcast. Students will have the option to listen to Demetria Gallegos (News Editor at the Wall Street Journal), Rod Griffin (Senior Director of Public Education and Advocacy at Experian), and Steve Fredrickson (Chairman of the Board at The PRA Group) speak about credit.
How can you implement this in your classroom? Try having students listen to ONE of the podcast clips and then complete the Google form. You could then have them pair-share with another student who listened to a different podcast OR put three students in a breakout room, have them each take one of the podcasts, and then share what they learned. Maybe you can assign this activity as extra credit (pun intended)!
If you would like to stay on the topic of credit for the whole class period, check out the FinCap Friday Move Over, Millennials, play the game Credit Clash, or check out all of the other NGPF material on the Managing Credit Unit Page.
