Get students hooked and keep them engaged using the theme of horror. By occasionally providing scary stories and lessons you'll have them in the palm of your hand and giving them plenty of reasons to want to be in your class doing their work - all year long!.

Currently 46 beautiful pages of creative and enjoyable lessons ... and growing!
These lessons aren't really about teaching the genre of horror, they're about using the genre to teach other concepts and to keep students interested in what you have to teach. It's also a great discipline management strategy because they'll do what it takes to be rewarded with lessons such as these. Providing this level of engagement is one of my secrets to great classroom management.
