This is a great Halloween or Cultural writing assignment. I tend to use things like this ELA assignment to encourage my students to use everything they learn in middle school in every class.
It begins as a short Q&A assignment then become a longer short story about their experiences with a Rougarou or Loup-garou on their way home front school.
I have included websites for research and a rubric for grading.
I never want my history students to fail an assignment so this Rougarou or Loup-garou task is simple. I just want to read what the come up with and how the story gets told in Louisiana.
