Serial Lesson Plans are Posted! (All done!)

After at least 200 hours of work, the entirety of the Serial Podcast lesson plans are finished and published! All told, there are over 250 pages of lessons, CCSS standards addressed, vocabulary lists, printable worksheets, and lots and lots of time stamps (so you know where to find what you're looking for in the podcast).

Unit 1 (10 lessons on the first episode) is available here.

Unit 2 (Episodes 2-4) is available here.

Unit 3 (Episodes 5-7) is available here,

Unit 4 (Episodes 8-10) is available here.

And Unit 5 is available here!


Now I can hopefully concentrate on doing a little more reflective writing. There's a lot coming up this semester. I'm looking forward to meditations on standards-based learning, the influence of private businesses on curriculum, and the power of local communities. But first, I'm going to read for pleasure for a little bit...

  1. I purchased the last unit, with episodes 11-12, and it was just the sample, not the complete unit.

    1. Thanks for the heads up, and sorry for the inconvenience. It's fixed now, and I'm 99% sure you can just re-download it from your list of purchases. I'm really sorry for the temporary hassle, and just send an email if there are any more issues and I'll just email you a copy.

  3. My greatest concern about Serial is how long it is. Were you able to require students to listen to the podcast outside of class time?

    1. I did the unit in 3 weeks and the was listening to in class only. I skipped the vocabulary portion and skipped episode 7.
