Product Description

This activity walks students through an episode ("Playthings") of the television show "Supernatural." The episode perfectly follows the conventions of a piece of Gothic literature, and it is a fun way to have your class understand those conventions without reading a short story! I use this as a pre-reading activity for Frankenstein.

The episode "Playthings" is available for download from iTunes and is available on Netflix. With this worksheet, students will map out the conventions and really analyze what a piece of Gothic lit. should contain! The questions are thought-provoking, and most classes are amazed at how perfectly it fits the conventions.

A small warning: this episode may not be appropriate for all ages or for schools that are strict regarding content.
