Pod Cast

Podcasts are cool
Matter of fact they rule!
Don't be a fool--
To deny yourself is cruel!
Consider them a teaching tool,
and a bonus for school!

If you are in b block you have no homework...but you will have to do (pay attention now block 'c'ers)
Journal Entry #1. Listen to This Podcast from the CBC and then answer the title question for your first journal response. It's only 19+ minutes, so put in your earbuds, go for a run/wash the dishes/clean your room and then wax eloquently in your journal to start off our discussion on the relevance of Willie Shakes.

Christian Studies
