PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Thanatopsis and Organic Burials Paired Text Study:
Each year, I have found it more and more difficult to engage my students in “Thanatopsis.” The language is dense and the subject uninteresting and irrelevant to most of my students. This year, I came across this short article and it changed everything! By starting with a discussion of burial practices based on the video link and following with a class reading of the organic burial text, my students were prepared and equipped to address the challenging poem.
Includes: a PPT with photos and explanation of the organic burials, a copy of a short organic burial non-fiction article, a complete copy of “Thanatopsis” with guiding questions to aid in comprehension, a set of paired text discussion questions, and answer keys.
Don’t be afraid of the difficult texts; hook your students and use the guiding questions to help them access the difficult ideas!
