SCARY STORIES (A post by Olivia Hestmark)
Recently in the 4th of ESO B group I gave a lesson on scary stories and differences between Brittish and American English. The students were preparing for a week long language exchange and I thought I would be good to introduce some new vocabulary and «slang» they had never seen before! We then went on to read a classic scary children’s story called Jenny and the Green Ribbon from the book In a Dark Dark Room. I turned out the lights and read the story in a low voice, pausing only to instill more fear! Afterwards the students split into two groups and were given time to write their own scary stories in teams to present to the class. One group wrote a story about a haunted farming village, and the other wrote a very terrifying story about a haunted grandfather clock! It’s always such a fun opportunity for me to share little things about my country and culture like this, who knew Jenny and the Green Ribbon would be such a big hit!!!
