PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Twain is at his amusing and sardonic best here with his "Ghost Story." Twain dabbles in the Romantic style of writing to set up his ghost story, but soon shifts to his familiar tongue-in-cheek, unabashed realism. His speaker soon lets the clumsy ghost have it for wrecking the furniture and further undermines its spectral existence until the ghost begs him not to let the story get around. I've set it up as a script for eight readers, which can work well in a classroom large or small. There is a link to a YouTube video which is helpful for explaining the Cardiff Giant. I've added vocabulary activities and several study questions (though not a full study guide or answer key). This will work best for high school students.
