Listen up: Student Podcasts from Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello!

leave a comment »

Last year, six students volunteered with the Thomas Jefferson Foundation at Monticello through the MSA service program.  Working with museum archivists, publication specialists, educational outreach staff, and members of the Foundation staff, students assisted with preparing and evaluating educational displays and materials.

Each student has chose an object found in Monticello to be the subject of an educational podcast he or she wrote and recorded. The students conducted original research at the collections of the International Center for Jefferson Studies at Monticello in order to write the podcasts, which have been placed on the Monticello website as part of their educational resources for visitors.  Read the Monticello blog post and listen to the podcasts HERE.
