From Drama Dreams and English Themes, this power point presentation provides an introduction to the wildly popular podcast "Serial."
The presentation examines statistics on podcast use, the idea of narrative journalism, the origins of "Serial" on "This American Life" and a brief biography of host and executive producer Sarah Koenig. The presentation also provides discussion questions and major ideas that can be analyzed in the podcast. It examines key characters and exposition. The presentation would provide an excellent introduction for English, Social Studies, Journalism, Communications, or another elective.
The presentation will also eventually be part of a bundle on "Serial," currently in development. The "Serial" unit is aligned with the Common Core. It has been left in its original power point form so that teachers can manipulate and add slides as needed.
