Description

Looking for a way to engage high school students meaningfully in nonfiction texts? Trying to incorporate more of a diversity of reading material or to differentiate for various learning styles with your reading lessons?

Try this chilling listening comprehension podcast lesson about body farms for older students. This product comes complete with:

1. Lesson hook ideas

2. Comprehension, analysis, and discussion questions

3. Before and after reading questions

4. A writing prompt to use as an optional extension essay

5. Video clip links to share with students to wrap up the discussion

Podcasts are an excellent way to improve students' listening comprehension skills while building in reading comprehension elements along the way. As you complete this engaging lesson, teach students how to "read" a podcast by stopping to discuss, by replaying areas that students find confusing, by encouraging them to ask questions of their own, and by extending their love for reading through a high-interest topic.

Listen as a class, or have students listen on their own devices using earbuds for a self-paced experience.

Try this podcast as a Halloween activity, as a sub lesson plan, as a homework assignment, as a literacy center activity, as a remediation option, as part of a reading comprehension unit, with your mystery and horror genre study, and more.

Due to the nature of the subject matter, I recommend this lesson be used in high school.

FORMATS INCLUDED:

  • This resource is a secure PDF.
  • It also contains a link to an editable student version of the podcast in Google Slides that you can alter to fit your needs and use it for distance learning.
  • Finally, you can use this resource with TpT's digital Easel platform as well.
