PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Washington Irving's classic folk tale "The Devil and Tom Walker" will come to life for your students when they delve into this pre-reading research activity which requires access to technology. First, students investigate Faust legends and folk tales. Next, students explore some of the archaic language (usurer, miser, termagant) included in the story, finding images and information that help students make connections to everyday life. Students will also speculate on symbols for birds and animals that are harbingers of death. Students end by investigating nicknames for the devil and his appearance over time. Use this activity with laptops, ipads, or even as a center activity with limited numbers of computers. Although designed as an individual activity, it could easily be modified to be used as a group activity. A completed student model is included!
