Product Description

This complete Halloween writing lesson plan uses the genre-based approach to writing to teach students how to write a scary story. The genre-approach starts with having students look at examples of the target writing genre (in this case, scary stories). They then analyze the key elements that make that writing what it is. This makes it easy for them to use those elements in their own stories.

In this Halloween Scary Story Lesson Plan, students read several scary stories, including "Movie of Death". They also talk about horror movies they are familiar with. They are then guided through an analysis of key features of a scary story. These include typical settings for a scary story, building tension, the concept of a twist,and endings. Finally, students write their own scary story with those genre-specific elements. It's a lot of fun for students and teachers alike!
