Podcasts in the Classroom!
Podcasting is a new idea that I have recently come across. One of the most recent Podcasts that I have watched is Alt. Latino: The Show. This is a wonderful podcast that can be incorporated into the classroom because it is about Spanish music from around the world including Chile, Mexico, Uruguay, and Columbia. Not only do you get to hear parts of different songs, but they are also explained to you in English about their meanings, the type of music, and who the singer is and their background. This could be an excellent resource for my Spanish 1 students who don't have enough vocabulary to figure out the meanings themselves, but they are still getting a cultural lesson out of hearing the music. The students will enjoy listening to the different types of music and learn about different styles and singers at the same time!
