We’ve been teaching with our own podcasts since, well, we started podcasting! Since part of our mission is to create this podcast as an open-access teaching resource, our goal is to build up a real library of sources to help make our podcasts useful to educators. We’ve been sharing some of the general ways we podcasts in the classroom on our Podcasts + page. Here you’ll find more detailed lesson plans, including those ideal for high school or college World, American, and European history classes. At the bottom of this page, and at the side of every page, you’ll also see the “tag cloud” that we created to help you find episodes by topic, time period, and region. If there’s a specific tag you’d like to see pop up, send us an email at hello [at] digpodcast [dot] org!
