The Grade 8 students have started the second quarter with its exploration of the genre of horror. They watched 4 episodes from Rod Serling’s “The Twilight Zone” and then drew lots as to which they will cover for their review essay.
They are required to evaluate the effectiveness of the plot twists of the episodes they watched. To this end, they will map out their ideas in order to formulate a thesis statement. From here, they will outline their ideas and then write their paper.
It is hoped that in this exercise the students will learn to support their ideas objectively.
