In this highly engaging story by Richard Matheson, students will pause occasionally to interact with the story as specified. I love to do this activity orally. I have the students get out a sheet of notebook paper and as I read the story orally to them, they interact with the text. It is complex enough to function as a read aloud for grades 5-8. Students can also complete this independently. The ending provides the opportunity for deep and thought provoking conversations.
