Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

We will create three additional episodes for Season two of #HUSHpodcast and develop a new podcast reflecting on the experience of Hispanic youth. We will also create a podcast curriculum that supports future podcasts, relies on self-expressive learning, provides culturally responsive teaching, and values cultural capital. We will use student surveys along with website, podcast hosting, and digital flyer analytics to determine how successfully we reached an intergenerational audience and to what extent students found value in the experience. We will ask teachers, diversity experts and students to assess the developed curriculum to determine its accessibility, usefulness and pertinence for creating additional podcasts that highlight the absent narratives of other minority groups.
