Pod B Episode 7

Middle Years Programme Personal Project Exhibition
This is our longest podcast yet! The reason? Everyone has so much to say about the Grade 10 MYP Personal Project exhibition held recently. We would like to have intervied all 30+ students but time was against us so here is a representative sample of Grade 10 students at International School Dhaka and what they did for their project this year. The podcast starts with an interview with Ms Carrick, our MYP coordinator, then moves onto interviews with:
  • Bisma Rahman: 'Lost Identity', Documentary about the Bihari people
  • Moshiur Hossain: 'Primary Education: A Scene in Bangladesh'
  • Fahd Sattar: 'Entertainment in the Different Social Classes', a Bangladesh perspective
  • Mariha Chowdhury: 'Construction Workers and Their Safety in Bangladesh'
  • Golam Adnan Ahmed: 'Koffee with Adnan', a talk show featuring Bangladesh personalities
  • Nahar Khan: 'Odissi: The Dance of the Sculptures'

Listen to the podcast and learn more about issues in Bangladesh and beyond through the eyes of these astute students.
