Sixty-Second Civics is a project I learned about from Free Tech For TeachersSixty-Second Civics offers a brief podcast about a given topic in Civics and includes a one-question quiz with the podcast to encourage listening comprehension.  The page has an archive of past podcasts, allowing teachers to search the page (CTRL-F) for topics relevant to their daily lessons.  This site would offer a high school or middle school social studies class a great resource for bell-ringer or warm-up activities.  There are a number of other links to civics-related podcasts and other resources along the left side of the page, too.
