Podcast Research Project

Student Instructions

Your task is to watch one film, and listen to at least 45 minutes of podcast material, on subjects of your choice taken from the available list and from the ActiveHistory Podcast Database.

You will be expected to deliver a 5-minute presentation to the class upon your return outlining what you watched / listened to, covering such things as:
