The list that the blog provides is helpful for teachers to see which best and safest way to engage students in discourse, especially on certain topics that are shown and talked about outside the classroom. If you are a teacher that needs a crash course on civics, there is a podcast that is called Civics 101 that is a basic refresher on how American democracy works. Implementing podcasts might be something new for teachers especially since there are podcasts that might not be student friendly due to language. Introducing podcasts to teachers during their professional learning time would be helpful since most people are listening to various types of podcasts and/or audiobooks which can be like a read-aloud. This will be beneficial for students to hear and speak out their thoughts after hearing something about topics from COVID to the role of parent’s involvement in education.
