Next, listen to the podcast and make notes about the topics that are addressed on your piece of paper. Once the podcast is finished, you should be able to summarize the podcast based off of your notes. While listening to the podcast, make notes about your reaction(s) to the program. If you feel “stuck” and don’t know how to evaluate your reactions, consider the following questions: Did the program change your understanding of the topic? If so, what changed? Did the program provoke new questions about the topic? What are these questions? Was the information presented in the program consistent (or inconsistent) with your understanding of the topic? What was the most surprising thing you learned? How can the information from the program be applied to your own life? (You DO NOT have to answer all of these questions—they are provided as prompts to aid you in the writing process.) Find information in the book or in one of the class lectures that relates to the material in the podcast or video. This information can either support or challenge the information presented in the podcast. Write your reaction paper. Your reaction paper should consist of: one to two paragraphs that summarize your thoughts about the topic prior to listening to the program. one to two paragraphs that describe the topics addressed in the program from beginning, middle, and end (this serves as proof that you actually listened to the whole program). At least two paragraphs that relate the information to class material (either lectures or the book). Cite the book pages and lectures referenced (does NOT have to be in APA format) two to three paragraphs that convey your reaction to the program. You can structure the “reaction” part of your paper any way you like, and can focus on whatever is interesting to you. However, you should NOT present simply a list of scattered thoughts. Clarity and organization are important. Additionally, your reaction should be about the content of the podcast, rather than irrelevant details (ex. speaking style, length, sound, etc.).
