HIST 1302 – Podcast Response Assignment
DIRECTIONS: Podcasts can be an entertaining way to learn about history. This is an individual assignment designed to expose you to a new historical topic that you might not otherwise learn much about in a history class. Before you complete this assignment, you must listen to ONE of the podcast episodes listed below. When you finish listening to your chosen podcast episode, you must answer the questions below. You can submit this assignment at any time during the semester, but there is a hard deadline of before 11:59 pm on April 24. Listen to your chosen podcast sometime around when it is assigned so that you have the necessary context to understand the material and the necessary information to answer the questions.
Please type your answers in complete sentences in a separate Word document and save as a .doc, .docx, or .pdf file. Submit to the Podcast Assignment under the Assignments module on our Canvas page.
