  Twilight Zone's "Monsters Are Due on Maple Street"
This week we are embarking on a trip to a
"dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity ...the Twilight Zone."
We will be bringing a teleplay from the classic show to life through a 
Reader's Theater style shared reading. Drama and Science Fiction are two of the main genres of literature. This
script will allow us to examine many conflicts between characters, many plot twists, and an in-depth
analysis of  theme as we discover who the monsters really are on Maple Street.

We are also continuing to work on our rough drafts for our students' Personal Narratives, our current writing activity. Students are developing their writing skills as they write about one event in their life, telling their story from beginning to middle to end.
