I’m working on a Excel project and need a sample draft to help me learn.
Background:What is podcasting and why are we doing it? Podcasts are digital audio episodic series that include diverse topics from arts to politics, much like radio programs of old. To access these podcast series, a user can download to a personal device for easy listening. Why is podcasting a major project for our course? Podcasts are a fun and accessible way to get your voice out and to educate others. Within the context of Asian American Studies, podcasting allows you to connect your learning to your communities and to the world. It provides an opportunity for you to translate your Professor’s lectures, the readings, and your own insights for a general audience. Like Paulo Freire says, critical literacy means not only reading the word but the world, and ASA Podcasting is one way of practicing this. What does reading the word and the world mean to you? What aspect of the world do you have something to say about? One of the longstanding demands of Ethnic Studies is for a humanizing education and making it relevant. Questions that may arise are: What more can we do to expose and confront the legacies and perpetuation of colonialism, racism and other systems of oppression? What stories need to be told from the perspectives of communities impacted by these systems? How does your learning help you connect to and transform your communities on and off campus? What do you have inside you that needs to be heard? How can you use this bubbling desire to inspire us to learn more, and more deeply? Passion is the heartbeat of a podcast and with that fire, you can tackle the Podcasting Golden Rule: Don’t bore your audience. Finally, be informed and authentic with your message. That is podcasting at its best.
Requirements: For this group assignment, your bibliography must have the sources below:
- Two books no older than 2015
- Two journal articles no older than 2015.
- Two news articles no older than 2018.
- Two visuals (in the form of DVDs, VHS,…that are movies, documentaries, shorts…from places like hulu.com, Youtube.com, Netflix.…) with no date limitations.
- Two audio of any kind (such as podcasts, tapes, CDs…) with no date limitations.
- List of names of people you are going to interview: Name, Title, Short Description of their relevance to your project, and Appointment Date of Interview (type of interview and location).
*Note that date limitations apply to only this exercise. When researching for your podcast, it has no time limitations; though we highly encourage you to use the most current research materials available. For the research data, you can use primary data such as interviews, reports, public hearings, and oral histories. You should also use secondary data, such as books, journal articles, theses, and dissertations. You can use newspaper and magazine articles, but they should augment books and journal articles, not be your only source of data. Interviews are mandatory. The Internet can also be useful, but use information selectively and cautiously. You can also use materials from the class syllabus; however, you must find additional materials to receive full credit for the research project.
