Product Description

I love doing weekly podcasts with my 8th graders (and I think they enjoy it too!). This podcast will be great to use around Halloween (or any time really). This zip file comes with an editable word doc (because I like to upload mine to Google Classroom for them to complete), editable PPT and a PDF.

Students click on the title which will take them to the short podcast. Students listen to the short podcast while answering the listening comprehension questions. They can listen via computer, iPad or phone. If they do not have access in the classroom you can also play the podcast aloud for the class as a whole.

After listening, there is a short article about "8 things everyone should know about zombies" with a few text analysis questions that ask students to compare the text and the podcast.

Last there is a short writing activity where students are given a mock argumentative prompt and asked to complete a chart to turn the prompt into a question, create a thesis statement, choose an argument, find a piece of evidence and elaborate.
