Students will create storyboards to re-tell “The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson and explore the concept of conformity. Students will also engage in group reflection about conformity, tradition, and the impacts of both on a community.

Learning Objectives

Students will:

  • (ELA-Literacy.SL9-10.1.D) Respond thoughtfully to diverse perspectives, summarize points of agreement and disagreement, and, when warranted, qualify or justify their own views and understanding and make new connections in light of the evidence and reasoning presented.
  • (ELA-Literacy.SL9-10.4) Present information, findings, and supporting evidence clearly, concisely, and logically such that listeners can follow the line of reasoning and the organization, development, substance, and style are appropriate to purpose, audience, and task.
