PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Let the dinosaurs, time-travel, and murder in Ray Bradbury's short story "A Sound of Thunder" provoke your students to consider why Bradbury's writing has achieved the level of "art." First, students will research the allusion to salamanders in the story. Next, they'll examine believable dialogue and unconventional capitalization. Then, students delve into the multitude of similes and metaphors in Bradbury's style. Finally, students concentrate on onomatopoeia and its effect of the story. This flexible activity could be done by individuals, small groups, or modeled during a whole-class discussion. Access to at least one computer for research would be helpful for this activity.
