Share these with students - and then send them to the show notes for a background deep-dive into the material. Some contain historical interviews and/or sound clips.
REMEMBER: science is embedded in history... check individual episodes for those that support your curriculum. That goes for all other subjects too!
THROUGHLINE: Ramtin Arablouei and Rund Abdelfatah host this NPR history podcast. "Every headline has a history". These stories relate the past to the present with compelling stories.
STUFF YOU MISSED IN HISTORY CLASS: join hosts Tracy V. Wilson and Holly Frey as they deconstruct a topic through great storytelling. They have many years of podcasts and hundreds of topics. Here's an idea: break students into groups to follow a story line: for example: the weather. Where and how has weather been a factor in history? (They have 10 episodes where weather is key). Then, using PECS (political, economic, cultural, social) attributes, explore the effect on history of that weather. Science: add these into your units on climate.
For a twist on history, give Malcolm Gladwell's (Outliers) REVISIONIST HISTORY a try. He will take you - and your students down a whole new road.
(more coming - I have to finish listening to a couple first)
