Use "The Devil and Tom Walker" by Washington Irving to make Halloween connections in your secondary ELA class. In addition to analyzing author's style, students include character, setting, plot, and theme in their own story writing. This activity gives students practice with narrative writing and helps prepare them for PARCC and other standardized writing assessments.
After reading the story, students write a new ending with this creative writing prompt. To guide students on their writing journey, these handout activities and graphic organizers help them analyze Irving's style and incorporate narrative elements.
