This 19 slide powerpoint is the perfect accompaniment for teaching the short story/drama,"The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street". It includes biographical information on Rod Serling, a vocabulary list with definitions, a vocabulary/picture matching activity, vocabulary review activity, anticipatory questions activity, story excerpts, 10 teleplay terms and definitions with illustrations, and review questions. It also includes a poem by Emily Dickinson that explores mob mentality. Finally, it includes a video link to an Electro Magnetic Pulse experiment that disables electronic devices (similar to what occurs in the story). Created by Beverly Brown, each slide is fully animated and illustrated.
