This is a great assignment to use around Halloween! Students are given an assignment sheet which details how they must compose a scary short story using literary elements and specific stylistic devices. They are then given a list of over 20 scary story starters or spooky photos to use for inspiration.
Also includes cards to use when reading other stories from classmates. Students rank the other stories on spookiness and how well they like what they've read.
