The Bear Brook Murders : An Interrupted Case Study Using a Popular Podcast

In 1985, a hunter walking through Bear Brook State Park in Allenstown, New Hampshire made a grisly discovery: a 55 gallon drum left deep in the woods, containing two sets of skeletonized remains, which investigators believed had been left in the woods for years….

   ....this is just the beginning to a facinating tale of a murder that would make forensic history! The effort to solve the many mysteries surrounding this investigation utilized breakthrough forensic techniques. From forensic genealogy to stable isotope analysis, this fascinating podcast will discuss how these new tools are applied to a mystery spanning over 30 years. This is a must for any true-crime enthusiast.

If you liked season 1 of the Serial podcast, then you will LOVE Bear Brook. This podcast is on many “Top Podcasts of the Year” lists. {https://www.newyorker.com/culture/2018-in-review/the-best-podcasts-of-2018}.

Listen to episode 1 and I promise you'll be hooked!!! {https://www.bearbrookpodcast.com/}

This digital download (.docx) provides a listening guide for episode 1 with content questions and answers. Students pause the podcast part way through to answer and discuss questions about the case. The "interrupted" format can be used in small group or whole class conversations, allowing students to interact and share ideas.

Episodes 1-7 are coming soon in bundled format!

Another activity I love is this podcast activity (link below) that uses the popular Radiolab podcast to introduce the important but complex topic of the CRISPR gene editing technique. This question and answer worksheet has students follow along with the podcast, answering questions as they go, but "interrupts" the podcast to have students think more deeply about the ethics and implications of this powerful new technology. https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/CRISPR-Interrupted-Radiolab-Podcast-printable-worksheet-4329465
