Crash Course is a great resource, and I use it frequently. However, sometimes students need guidance to work through the information, and I need a way to hold them accountable as listeners. For this reason, I made these quick, ready-to-print listening and analysis guides for EVERY episode of Crash Course Literature. Each guide features a pre-and post-viewing activity, 6-10 questions, and answer key. Questions move from the comprehension level through inference, analysis, and evaluation. Questions come in multiple choice, short answer, gap fill, lists, and performance tasks. This set includes the listening guides for episodes 208-09, which go with the two episodes focused on Things Fall Apart.

Updated to include a fillable .pdf and a Google Form version of the questions: the form is self-grading, customizable, and ready to use!

BUT can save more with my Things Fall Apart Synthesis Bundle, which includes all the supplemental text questions and resources I pair with my novel unit! This bundle includes 8 resources, 100+ questions, and 50+ pages! Purchasing each item individually would cost $20.50, but this bundle will save you $5.50. That's just like getting two resources for free. Plus, the bundle features exclusive synthesis writing prompts and an easy-to-use rubric! Save time, money, and sanity with this bundle! Bundle includes:

-20 Things Fall Apart Journals

-Things Fall Apart Context Clues

-"The Second Coming" Analysis Questions

-"Words and Behavior" Analysis Questions

-Crash Course Things Fall Apart Listening Guides

-4 Tools for Teaching "The Danger of the Single Story"

Save Big with the Crash Course Literature Bundle! All together, there are 45 episodes of Crash Course literature, and I have a listening guide for each one. Each one retails individually for $2. The first listening guide is free, so buying the rest individually would cost $88 dollars. However, with this bundle, you will get them all in one place for $58 (a thirty dollar savings!), and when Crash Course expands its collection of videos, I will add more to this set, and you won’t have to pay any more. That’s huge savings!
