Download “The Possibility Of Evil” Short Story For Halloween Today!

The Possibility of Evil by Shirley Jackson

Do you need a student-centered project that will encourage bullying awareness and group collaboration — and will keep your students engaged all week? Not only is this short story unit, based on horror writer Shirley Jackson’s “The Possibility of Evil,” full of high interest student discussions perfect for Halloween and Bullying Prevention Month, but it encourages students to think beyond themselves to how they can help others. Not only can you download the short story here, but I’ve also written a student assessment practice and writing project unit that will help your students develop their critical thinking skills, even as they enjoy the story.
