Use this activity as part of your Dracula unit. Whether you are reading the novel or a dramatic adaptation, this is a great activity that lets students have some fun with the text while activating their knowledge of the plot and characters. It makes a great homework assignment or a fun ticket-in-the-door activity to begin a discussion.
This little worksheet is a great way to engage reluctant writers. Employing the concept of WTL (Write to Learn), an informal writing exercise designed to motivate written responses to literature, this activity tasks your students with writing a text message conversation between Jon Harker and Lucy. Let students' knowledge of the text and imaginations fly! Your kids will have a blast with this one.
