Welcome, students, to the 2006-07 academic year at Brooklyn High School of the Arts, and to my English Language Arts class.
In addition to our classwork and this website, I will be recording regular audio podcasts as supplemental material for students. Each podcast will discuss what we've been doing in class, including reading and writing assignments, and also provide information and reminders about requirements, procedures, due dates, and more.
You will be able to subscribe to the podcast in iTunes, where you can listen to the podcast, download it to your iPod, and have new episodes downloaded automatically as they are recorded. It's simple to subscribe, and it's free.
Click here to open iTunes and go directly to the podcast. Click (SUBSCRIBE) to have iTunes automatically download new episodes when they become available. Follow the instructions in iTunes to download and update podcasts to your iPod.
Even if you don't have an iPod, you can download and use iTunes for free. Follow the instructions in iTunes to download and save audio files in .mp3 format, so you can listen to them on any .mp3 player.
There will be at least one new podcast episode per week. See me if you have any questions.
