2. Read "Monstrous Acts:" http://www.shmoop.com/lottery-shirley-jackson/botw/resources?d=http://www.salon.com/jan97/jackson970106.html
3. Pick a "monstrous act" that you've witnessed (either big or small) in your life and write a short story or personal narrative based on that experience. (2-3 pages) Your narrative must contain a setting, defined themes, literary devices of your choosing, and a few developed characters. If you can’t think of a “monstrous act,” write a modernized version of this story based on personal experience. Be prepared to share your stories in small groups tomorrow.
