This is a graphic organizer to use while studying suspense in any upper level literature class. I currently have it configured for Daphne du Maurier's short story, "The Birds," but it can easily be edited for any short story, novel, or play. 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!
