Tweens and teens love chills and thrills! Kick off a unit - or an exhilarating lesson - of intense suspense with this all-inclusive 38-slide PowerPoint "The Elevator." Presentation includes the text, anticipatory questions, probable passage, and Common Core aligned discussion/essay questions where students can write their own conclusion.
*This lesson is all-inclusive and sub-friendly. Keep them learning, even when you're not there!

Terrific Teacher Tip: Make a splash! As an exit ticket activity, students are given a “splash” of key words from the lesson. They must then write a few sentences, thereby summarizing their learning using the “splash” words.
