Product Description

Listed here is a physical download of our Fear and Root Words in the Horror Genre lesson. This is a great introductory activity that introduces students to the horror genre. We have used it for Edgar Allan Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart" and Patrick Carman's Skeleton Creek.

This lesson contains a step-by-step script to work through each activity including a media presentation (with animate GIFs and horror music when you use the Google Slide version), Think-Pair-Share activity, Google Form formative assessment (hard copy too), and a link to a Kahoot. Our G Suite for Education version of this lesson can be found here: Fear and Root Words in the Horror Genre.

The entire folder download should have all the materials you need. If something isn't working, please send us a message.
