Product Description
‘The Monsters are Due on Maple Street’ is one of my favorite dramas! Not only do students love the story, it just lends itself so well to understanding the elements of plot and how they connect with each other. Outside of content, the ideas in this screenplay by Rod Sterling are very pertinent for the world we live in. Students get to explore the nature of a group vs a mob, how people influence each other (sometimes for the worse), the consequences of not taking a stand, and the damaging nature of words.

This 16-page resource is ready to print and go. No prep is required! It would also work well as a sub plan. These engaging activities will take a week of class time to implement. Answer keys are included!

Throughout the week, students will:

✔ Use context clues to decode new vocabulary words
✔ Journal about the power of words as weapons
✔ Respond to comprehension and critical thinking questions
