This page will serve as a resource for completing the podcast portion of your Homefront blog assignment. The objective of this task is to creatively display knowledge you have gained regarding the experiences of Americans during the war. You will be required to produce at least one podcast to include as a new post in your blog from the perspective of your chosen character. Whether you have chosen to blog as a soldier during the war or someone on the homefront, your podcast should reflect attitudes and observations for a chosen point in time for your character. For example, you could tell the story of your soldier during a campaign in, or coming home from the war; or a woman working on the homefront’s story during or after the war. An example of student work from a prior class follows below to give you an idea of what you can do:
In order to complete your podcast, you will:
- Record and edit your dialogue using Audacity
- Upload your podcast to Soundcloud
- Use the share feature in Soundcloud to embed your podcast into your blog post as I have done above
You will be given class time to record your podcast dialogue, and I will be available to help you along the way. Please feel free to use your peers for assistance as well as acting talent in your pieces. To spice up your podcast, you should utilize the free sound effects available at Creative Commons. Please also utilize the comments section here to ask questions and seek help throughout the project. Good luck!
