This video instructional series from Annenberg Learner takes readers on a complex journey through the dying process. Best suited for advanced high school students, undergraduates, and adult learners, these 10 half-hour videos present case studies, personal stories, and a wide range of North American cultural perspectives on the death process. Issues around hospice care, death by violence, suicide, how children make sense of death, and other topics are also presented. The series begins with the question, What is Death? It then moves through episodes on the Dying Person, Facing Mortality, the Deathbed, Fear of Death and Dying, and more before culminating in a provocative 30-minute episode entitled The Good Death. Hosted by Robert J. Kastenbaum, a leading authority on the topic of death and dying, these superlatively produced videos provide an excellent supplement to any educational treatment of this topic.
