Product Description
So you know what suspense IS. . . but how does it WORK? How does the author Jack Finney create suspense in “Contents of the Dead Man’s Pocket”? In this close reading activity, students can work in groups or independently to find out. They work to relate common "tricks of the trade" for building suspense to this short story. In addition, they will annotate for effective use of language, like sensory imagery, onomatopoeia, simile, and vivid verbs. Finally, students contrast the two settings for the story (the apartment and the ledge). Don't let your workload leave YOU out on a ledge! All the hard work has been done for you.
