This resource features two engaging, character-driven activities to bring Shirley Jackson's “The Lottery” into the 21st century! Included are realistic-looking Twitter and Snap Chat graphic organizers and one 45 minute lesson plan. In the lesson plan, your classroom will be transformed into a real life "twitter-world" in which students will create accounts for hypothetical characters in the story and interact with one another through their pages. The Snap Chat worksheet is perfect for an engaging homework or sub-plan that your students will look forward to working on and sharing with their friends. Your students will thank you for offering such fun ways to connect with Jackson's twisted tale and will not even realize how much they are learning by digging deeply into the text and characters.
