As a culmination to the study of their own grammatical errors, members of this junior class created Podcasts—brief audio programs that are often available for free download on iTunes and other websites.
Students were directed to create instructive and practical content. The program had to explain the error to listeners, as well as offer tips to help avoid and/or correct the mistake.
Who knows? The next Grammar Girl or Angry Grammarian (two hosts of professionally produced Podcasts) may hail from central Maine.
I think the results speak for themselves. I’ve included my own humble effort along with a smattering of the delightful student products. Enjoy!
