This Week in Science -- Recording Podcasts
This week (Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday) we will work on polishing up our "To Begin With..." scripts, record the script, and begin editing the sound files. If you have any sound effect files that you have collected from home and want to use in the project, now is the time to bring them to school. Remember that you need to include: 1) a Rhythmic sound, 2) a Pre-recorded voice, and 3) an Exclamation. And, the total time allowed is from 2:30 to 5:00 minutes.

(Each Selection is 2:30 long.)

Here is a hilarious example of the format by David Henderson called, "The Long Way Home." It's about Odysseus leaving messages on Penelope's answering machine & various excuses about why he can't come home to her.

Here is another one that I liked: "They Didn't Get Along" by Michael Hearst and Rick Moody / USA. This one carries the 'didn't get along' theme all the way through the recording.

Here is one by Jeanette Werkhoven / Holland -- a sort of narrative/eye-witness report called "The Levitating Stone". In a small village in India, a 90 kg stone levitates when the name of sufi saint Qamar Ali Dervish is chanted.

If we do not finish the project by Wednesday, we're going to take a break and move back into our Chemical Reactions lab on Thursday and Friday. We may devote more time to the podcasting project next week if necessary. Our goal is to completely finish editing the final podcast before the winter holiday.

MrC, you left your window open again, and it's right by the car drive-in, so someone could just go in before you got back...
