you will write a 600-750 word reflective essay on your process in developing the podcast in Module 3 and in listening to the other podcasts created by your peers. Your essay should have at least five (5) substantial paragraphs – including an introduction, three (3) body paragraphs (a solid paragraph is at least 5 sentences), and a conclusion – about your experience with writing a podcast script. By drawing evidence from your experience with podcasting, you will do a reflective self-assessment and write a well-developed analysis. Consider the following questions in your essay:
- What type of podcast did I choose and what was the topic? Why did I choose the podcast format and topic? informative podcast, my dream job.
- What evidence did I choose for the podcast? Why did I choose the sources? What did I discover about the topic in developing the podcast?
- How did I use the writing process as part of my script development? What challenges did I face in writing the script and how did I handle the challenges? How did my script writing relate to formal academic essay writing?
- What did I learn from listening to my peers’ podcasts?
I learn to not give up. And try the hardest we can.
Here is my script about the podcast.
D=Do you want to do what you want, do you want better money? Let’s talk about a dream job . Hi, this is Duygu Selin today I have a special guest! My cousin.
G=Hey I am Yeliz . I am a 4th grade student.
D= I want to share my dream job with her and give some advice.
D= SO, Yeliz do you know want what you want to be when you grow up?
G= I don’t really know what I want to be. I’m thinking of being a kid doctor or scientist.
D= oh WOW that’s really interesting. Do you want to tell me why you pick those majors?
G= alright, One of the reasons that I want to be a kid doctor is I love seeing people happy, especially people who are younger than me. The reason why I also want to be a scientist is I
D= Oh, that’s so nice how you love seeing people younger than you.
G= So, now tell me what is your dream job?
D= Since elementary school my dream job was architecture or civil engineer. And right now I’m majoring civil engineering in college.
G= What do civil engineers do?
D= That’s a great question. Civil engineers design, build, construct and maintain projects and the system in the public and private sector.
G= Mhmm. That’s an interesting career. Why did you choose to become an engineer?
D= Because I love designing. I have a sketchbook. Most of my cousins are engineers too. I heard it’s a fun major. Also engineers make good money.
G= Have you ever designed anything ? Or did you help anyone?
D= Yes I have. One of my mom’s friends bought a new house. She saw my sketchbook the other day and she asked me to help her to design her daughter’s bathroom
G= Oh you already have your first experience.
D= Yes, I have. I really enjoy it. You have to be careful when choosing your dream job and major.
D= Because it’s something you will do your entire of your life. So make sure you enjoy it.
G= That’s right. I also have another question for you.
D= Sure go ahead.
G= When you apply for a job do they hire you out of nowhere or do they have requirements ?
D= Mhmm most of the jobs have their own requirements. For example if I try to apply for an engineering job the first thing they will ask is if I have a bachelor’s degree. I hope this answered your question.
G= What is a bachelor’s degree and how long does it take to earn it?
D= It usually takes 4 years to earn a bachelor’s degree. It all depends on academic progress. But you need to earn 120 credits for a bachelor’s degree.
G= Thanks for having me here, I really enjoyed it ! I learned a lot.
D= Your welcome! Wish you the best for your future.
