Thing 20: Admin & Teacher - Subscribe to Podcast

Through iTunes there's a podcast called, Writing Excuses. A panel of authors answer questions about craft and publishing. Part time humorous, yet thoughtful on craft. Makes for a great tool to provide students to listen in class or outside of school as a resource or assigned homework. Teachers could benefit from podcasts like this one for building expertise or staying sharp on the craft of writing. If we grow in our skills, we see the nuances for instructing students. I could see linking to a podcast on the blog and facilitating a conversation. Another location is iTunes U. Several college level podcasts on multiple subjects. I, no surprise, have subscribed to several writing topics.
