This is a PowerPoint that would be applicable to any work utilizing suspense. This resource contains all of the following information including graphics, memes, and cartoons to allow visualization of each component:
-1st Person POV
• Identify techniques and elements of suspense
-Jurassic Park Video Clip (Video is embedded.)
#1-Create a chart identifying FIVE techniques and/or elements of suspense and how they are demonstrated in “The Pit and the Pendulum.” (or any work of your choosing)
#2-Write a creative story incorporating FIVE techniques and/or elements of suspense.
***I created this lesson to go along with “The Pit and the Pendulum” by Edgar Allan Poe, but it would apply to any work utilizing suspense. You would just need to change the title of the story on the slide detailing the instructions for Assignment #1.
***I was conservative with the time frame. Time will vary depending on time needed to complete the written assignment that corresponds with the PPT.
