Product Description

I am so excited to use these stations for a fun and engaging change of pace for this season. Big kids like Halloween too, and this activity is a great way to bring the spookiness of Halloween to English class. It could also be used as an engaging activity to pair with a thematic or genre study for mystery, detective, horror, or Gothic literature. This lesson will engage your critical thinkers and challenge them to write (creatively and formally), research, role-play, listen, and share.

This activity involves five learning stations:

Task 1 is a reader response analysis that requires students to think about mood while analyzing a visual text and making personal connections. Task 2 guides students through a close reading of “I heard a Fly buzz-when I died” by Emily Dickinson. Task 3 gets students to deconstruct Frankenstein’s monster to challenge their thinking about the monster’s motives. Task 4 is an analysis of the father of the mystery story, Edgar Allan Poe. Task 5 is a research study of the universal motif, the headless horseman.
