Using art, music, and literary classics, students explore the idea of "monsters" in society, analyze how they are portrayed, the purpose they serve, and why they are necessary. After an introductory brainstorming activity, students read Beowulf and Grendel, watch and listen to snatches of monster-inspired music (Night on Bald Mountain, Jaws, and others), then apply research skills to design and present their own conceptual monster. Includes an assessment rubric, links to multimedia resources, and extension activities.

tag(s): characterization (14), literature (220), stories and storytelling (34)

In the Classroom

Enhance student learning by having them use Genially, reviewed here, or Canva Comic Strips Template, reviewed here, to create and present their conceptual monster to classmates.
