LISTENING CLOSELY AND TAKING NOTES: COLONIAL TRADE PODCAST ABOUT THE WHEELWRIGHT
To prepare for this lesson, download the following podcast for students to listen to as a whole class: http://podcast.history.org/2007/09/03/carriages-carts-and-wagons/?search=wagons
The podcast is about 15 minutes total. But in this lesson, students listen through only 6:11. To support students with their listening practice, this 6-minute segment is played once for students to get the gist. Then (in both Parts B and C of Work Time), students listen again to these same 6 minutes, but broken into two shorter 3-minute chunks. See notes in the body of the lesson.
