Today in class we discussed the genre of horror. This was just a special lesson plan that I put in the middle of our mystery unit to have some fun with Halloween. The students looked at some popular video clips and discussed some of the characteristics of the horror genre. We then looked at some children movie cartoons that were recently released, such as Paranorman, Coraline, etc. and discussed how they fit into the horror genre and debated whether or not they were too scary for kids to see. It was really interesting to hear some of the students response on what they thought!
2nd, 5th & 7th hour: Candy Corn article due Friday, November 2!
Hope everyone has a Happy Halloween! Stay safe!
