This is a great idea! I love that this lesson can be modified for the students I am tutoring for reading. Thank you for the templates as well.

I am an English teacher in Scotland and have just used this task with my S2 class as part of the study of Frankenstein. My class absolutely LOVED this task. Thank you so much!! I'll definitely pass this on to others.

Thank you Michelle Kimbro. I'm a former teacher taking a Structured English Immerson class to renew my certificate in AZ. I'm going to use this lesson and modify it as a dramatization. It's been 3 years since I taught, so I need resources such as this one. I like how you based the theme on what kids know; video games and cartoons! You probably didn't get any blank stares from the kids with this one!
