This is a graphic organizer to use while studying suspense in any middle or high school literature class. I use examples from Daphne du Maurier's short story, "The Birds," but it can easily be edited for any short story, novel, or play if necessary. It defines suspense, provides an example of how to complete the table, and gives five spaces for students to record quotes from the story they are studying that demonstrate suspense. In the box next to the quote, students must describe their feelings of anticipation that they have while they read.
Aligns perfectly with CCRA.R.5!
