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.
