Death is always a fascinating subject, so this podcast it sure to catch the attention of your students (I know it did mine!). This short 10 minute podcast talks about many of the questions people have about death and is based of the book by the author Caitlin Doughty, Will My Cat Eat My Eyeballs. Feel free to listen to this podcast before purchasing this guide by clicking HERE.
This podcast guide contains nine listening comprehension questions that they will answer as they listen. Make sure students have internet access in order to complete this assignment (or you can play it for them).
Additionally there are three learning target questions that ask students to determine the central idea and how it is formed throughout the podcast. Finally, students are asked to pull from their own personal background knowledge and expand on the idea from the podcast that the fear of death is cultural.
This product includes a PDF, editable PPT and editable word document (for upload into Google Classroom if you prefer to use it that way).
