Podcast on Acculturation


Create informative and persuasive communicative messages in different mediated contexts.

We live in a world where anyone can create her or his own audio or video production and display it for the world. One such medium, podcasting, has become wildly popular. To help you understand what podcasts are and how they are changing modern media, start by reading the article, “What is Podcasting?” from Journalism.org.

Using the free audio editing program Audacity (free to download at http://audacity.sourceforge.net/), you will create a 5 to 10 minute Podcast explaining the history of a specific concept or theory discussed within the textbook. You must cite at least 3 peer-reviewed sources within your podcast. You cannot use the same topic you used for the voiced-over PowerPoint presentation for this assignment.

Furthermore, only one person can create a podcast on a specific subject, so please make sure you post which topic you’ve chosen in the general discussion board this week. As always, this is a first-come, first-get process, so don’t wait until the last minute to select your topic. The following is a list of the fundamental components of your podcast:

Must be a communication topic discussed in the textbook.
You must use 3 peer-reviewed sources (not from the textbook).
You must use music of some kind within the podcast.
You must have at least one clear transition, a musical interlude that helps you switch topics, within the podcast.
Podcast should be formatted as a news-based story on your topic.
