PodCast- Your PodCast

This is the script of my PodCast.

I didn't have any trouble deciding what to make my lesson about. I am not going to be in my classroom on St. Patrick's Day so I made my podcast about Ireland and St. Patrick's Day. This way I can make sure my students get the information i wanted them to and I don't miss out completely.
First I wrote my script and timed myself. When I was happy with it I downloaded Audacity. I used it to record myself and add some quiet Irish introduction music. (If it was too loud my students would start dancing and not hear the lesson).
Next I made a PodBean Account and uploaded my file. This took a little work to convert the file to an MP3. Next I published it on my new PodBean account and created the link on this blog.

Hope you enjoy it!
