PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

All Season 1 Serial units are now available. If you think you might use all 5 units, we recommend purchasing them as a bundle, and saving 20%. Click here for the Serial bundle, covering all 12 episodes.

Mentioned by The Wall Street Journal and featured by Slate.com, 55 pages (eight full lessons, plus a quiz) of teacher guides and printable student worksheets covering season 1, episodes 5-7 of the podcast "Serial." This set of eight exercises, when used as a unit, can take between four and five days to complete, however each exercise stands alone, and can be used independently.

Unit 3 builds off of Units 1 and 2, which covers episodes 1-4 of Serial over 18 exercises. You can download Unit 1 here, Unit 2 here and unit 4 here

What's terrific about studying Serial is that it engages students in a contemporary story which is actually more conducive to teaching the standards than a classic novel. Students get to practice their reading, listening and problem-solving skills by seeking out primary sources (such as maps, voice recordings, letters and other multimedia resources). This is a great unit for project-based learning (PBL).

Each exercise begins with a description of how the exercise aligns to common core ELA standards in reading, writing, language, and listening and speaking, making for easy justification of a Serial unit to administration.

Serial is appropriate for high school aged (9th - 12th grade) students and up. There is some sensitive language in this first episode however, so I've included a guide to navigating it should you want to avoid those sections altogether.

Common Core with Uncommon Literature is happy to share these lessons with you, and ask that if you enjoy them to please rate them here, and tell others what you think. We appreciate your support, and would love to hear your feedback. You can find us on Twitter at @TheMrGodsey, and on the web at www.mrgodsey.com.
