Assignment using a Podcast followed by an Interactive Activity using Jamboard & Discussion

Assignment using a Podcast followed by an Interactive Activity using Jamboard & Discussion
California State University, Fresno
Radiolab has an excellent episode documenting how you would assign a price tag to nature used as a foundation for discussion. This is the introductory assignment in a climate change and environmental science class. It was formerly just a short answer response submission by individual students (file uploaded; screenshot of discussion prompt) which has now been expanded to include a discussion on Canvas that helps segway to the following week where water usage is introduced with a Jamboard (linked). This exercise engages students via three different means of communication and interaction. They listen to a podcast, reflect on their understanding and communicate that understanding in written form to the instructor and to their peers in an active discussion. They're also then subsequently engaged with a Jamboard that builds off this introductory activity, expanding the engagement tools used in this course.

Interactive Video

Interactive Video
California State University, Fresno
Videos can be excellent teaching tools. The key to success is to keep them short and require engagement so that students are not passively watching. In this activity, short videos (≈ 7 minutes) were recorded and existing media was embedded (Smart History. Art, History, Conversation.) Quizzes and notes were then added using Panopto and Edpuzzle to make them interactive.

Synthesis Assignment: Charting Where the Authors Intersect

Synthesis Assignment: Charting Where the Authors Intersect
California State University, San Bernardino
This assignment is designed for a First Year Composition course and would take place after several lessons on synthesis and close readings of the 2 texts, which is used to help prepare them for an essay where they develop their own theory on the issue of news media objectivity. Part 1 of the assignment asks students for homework to complete a chart [Google doc] identifying where the two authors' ideas intersect, how/why they intersect, and then asks the student to draw conclusions; what they're noticing about the scholarly conversation; what's at stake or forms the disagreement. The two scholars utilized for this assignment are Jay Rosen’s “Beyond Objectivity” and Linda Greenhouse’s “Challenging ‘He Said, She Said’ Journalism”, however any 2 texts on any issue can be substituted. Part 2 and 3 can be adapted as an in-class learning activity, either for synchronous or asynchronous course, or f2f. Part 2: Students complete a Google Shared Chart, where each student adds 1 idea from their homework. Part 3: Using Google Jamboard students then discuss what they discover in their synthesis in 3 prompts.
