AUT283-21 Non-Fiction Texts: Podcasts and Documentaries in the LC Classroom


In this webinar I will discuss how I use podcasts and documentaries at senior cycle in the English classroom. I will talk about why they are worth studying as a non-fiction text and how they can be used to create engaging writing activities. I will also look at how they can be used as a flipped learning activity to promote engaged and educated discussion, deep thinking, and to build background knowledge and cultural capital.

  • Using podcasts and documentaries as a text to study (Serial & Blackfish)
  • Podcasts and documentaries: flipped learning- building background knowledge, cultural capital and looking at controversial issues.
