*** answer key included This is a listening comprehension for the 5th episode of the second season of the TV show Riverdale. The document is already formatted so you only have to print the needed pages and makes copies. As always, the document also includes the answer key. Finally, I have also included a writing journal for the students to complete either at school or at home. It provides students with an opportunity to reinvest their understanding of the episode and of the series. This is a wonderful TV show to get the students to discuss issues related to their everyday life such as peer pressure, family unit, friendship, … Plus, the TV show is loosely based on the Archie Comics, which means that you can have them do a reading activity afterwards, or have your students create their own comics based on the episode. I have created listening comprehensions for other episodes of the first season of Riverdale. It is therefore perfect to assess the progression of a student’s learning. In addition, the level of difficulty progresses as the season advances. Notes from my past experiences and my applied linguistics studies if this evaluation is intended for ESL/EFL learners: Linguistics and language acquisition studies show that active listening, such as completing a listening comprehension evaluation, benefits ESL learners much more than passive listening. It gives their listening a purpose and focuses students on trying to figure out the words and meaning. According to language learning studies, the use of authentic material (meant for first language) provides more benefits than adapted material. If possible, do not use subtitles when presenting a TV show or movie. My experience has shown me that students focus too much on reading the subtitles instead of trying to listen for understanding. Students may feel overwhelmed the first time but they will gain in confidence over time. If there is a possibility, try to have each student watch and answer the listening comprehension individually. Provide them with a time frame as to when they must have completed the evaluation and returned it to the teacher. This way you are certain to evaluate their listening skills and not their abilities to listen and write all at once. It also helps students with learning difficulties.

This series is excellent, and I would even dare to say better than the book as I find the characters better developed. Even though, like the book, the TV series discusses suicide, the TV series allows for additional discussions as each episode adds characters and therefore secondary storylines.
