Full unit, over two weeks of materials. The unit examines the four main elements of suspense: foreshadowing, figurative language, dramatic irony, and realistic characters. Students will look at these elements through excerpts of Stephen King novels, specifically The Shining, Salem's Lot, Cujo and more. This unit will take you from practice to formative and provide all the rubrics and answer keys needed along the way. My students thoroughly enjoyed this unit and I hope yours will too!
