This Podcast aligns with a Civil Rights lesson plan that incorporates iPods into classroom. The students are divided into groups of 4. Each student in the group will use their iPods (a portable music player produced by Apple Computers)to interview someone who was living during the 1960s. The interview questions will pertain to several events that took place during the Civil Rights Movement. The groups will then combine their questions and develop a Podcast including images. This podcast was created to serve as an example for the students.
