English Level 08
Unit 2 THE THRILL OF HORROR
In this unit, you will encounter some scary stories and you will think about why so many people enjoy being frightened. As you read, you will revisit the Essential Question and gather your ideas about it in your Response Log. At the end of the unit, you will have the opportunity to write a literary analysis of one of the stories and explain how it fits into the horror genre. Filling out the Response Log will help you prepare for this writing task.
The dream begins with a teacher who believes in you, who tugs and pushes and leads you to the next plateau, sometimes poking you with a sharp stick called ‘truth’.
