Hello. Today's podcast is a description of a project we do the last week of school at South Valley Jr. High called "American History Idol". The last couple of days of school each year are tricky because books have been turned in and typically finals are over a couple of days before our actual last day to allow make up tests, etc. We do this fun activity which crowns an "American History Idol" as voted on by the 8th grade student body at our school. Listen to the podcast to learn more about how we set up and run this activity.
