Recently, students in Ms. Temple’s freshmen English class finished a unit featuring Richard Connell’s infamous short story, “The Most Dangerous Game.” For the final project in the unit, students wrote a sequel to the iconic ending of Connell’s short story. Continuing in the style of “The Most Dangerous Game,” students included foreshadowing, imagery, and suspense in their original sequel story. The students met the challenge of this assignment with enthusiasm and creativity. After completing the project, they read their sequels to their classmates in a darkened classroom, which added a foreboding atmosphere to the presentations. The students delivered stories full of heart-pounding moments of intrigue and suspense, which kept their audience on the edge of their seats, anticipating each plot-twist and celebrating each surprise ending.
