Timor Leste introductory podcast

G’day all. I’m beginning a unit on Timor Leste (East Timor) with my Year 8s this week, and planning to do a stations strategy again, including a podcast introducing things. I was lucky enough to be able to interview Kirsty Sword-Gusmao, so that forms part of the podcast as well.


Last week we had Major Daniel from the ADF come and present about his time in Timor, which was fantastic…the boys were mainly concerned with whether he had killed anyone, thrown a grenade into a house etc (no and no if you’re interested).

    Dave, started the podcasting for my year 12’s. Seems to be working well at the moment, but will wait and see what happens
