Podcast/Youtube Video

Primate Podcast or Youtube Video
Goal: briefly describe some unique characteristics about a particular primate
Skills developed: narrative building, clearly identifying an audience and goal for your work, audio &visual story telling, concise scripting, audio & visual software (Audacity & Spark). I think next time I do this, I will add a review component to the assignment, asking students to watch/listen to 2 of their classmates work and provide a review.
