"The Lottery"

Designed to open a unit on the suspense/horror genre, this plan hooks readers with an activity that mirrors the action of Shirley Jackson's short story "The Lottery"  (without the grisly ending). Use either the twenty-minute 1969 film or clips from the 1996 made-for-television version. A soundly crafted lesson, but you will need to create the vocabulary sheet mentioned with words from the story that might be unfamiliar to your class.

When I first started teaching, coming up with activities and lesson plans was nerve racking. Soon, the activities became boring year after year. Lesson Planet has helped me create lessons and activities that keeps students actively engaged. Thanks Lesson Planet.
