Língua da Gente
Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached
Rating

In Brazil, the term língua da gente (literally ‘language of the people’) refers to the way that people actually talk in everyday speech. And that, in essence, is the object behind this series. We hope to provide practical lessons that demonstrate how people really speak, and we do this by presenting brief, slice-of-life dialogs, which focus on some daily situation, scenario, or task that we encounter every day.

Each audio podcast, generally between 8-12 minutes, includes the presentation of a brief dialog, a line-by-line English translation, and more in-depth analysis of the pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar, and cultural content in the lesson. Discussion blogs also accompany each lesson, providing community interaction for comments and questions. In broad terms, the lessons are subdivided into three levels of difficulty: Beginning, Elementary, and Intermediate. Additionally we have a cultural show that covers current events and related social issues.

Podcasting in the Government Classroom
Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached
Rating

Government classrooms could use podcasting to encourage discussion about political issues and current events. Most government classrooms are held during the twelfth-grade year, right when students are becoming adults. Research shows that most seventeen and eighteen-year-olds are interested in debating critical issues and participating in their own education, rather than listening to a lecture. Podcasting provides a unique opportunity to tap into that interest and give students the chance to be creative. A government classroom could create a weekly podcast with commentary on the subjects they are covering as well as current events that correspond with those subjects. Students could also interview local government leaders or average citizens about political issues.

T.S. Eliot's Prufrock, Stephen Colbert, and Ben Folds
Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached

This is a 10-20 minute activity that frontloads T.S. Eliot's "The Lovesong of J. Alfred Prufrock" using a Terry Gross interview with Stephen Colbert. In the interview, Colbert tells Gross about his fascination with the masks we wear. He then pulls in a favorite song of his - "The Best Imitation of Myself" by Ben Folds - to illustrate the concept of 'faking' identity. Next steps after this activity: reading and annotating the poem itself. This activity is an excellent example to use for teaching 'allusion.'
