“The Lottery” – Reimagined
“The Lottery” – Reimagined
A Photographic Storyboard


Since 1948, Shirley Jackson’s short story, “The Lottery,” has resonated with students and educators. Why? That is what this challenge asks you to examine. Read and study the story; create a 12-frame visual storyboard of the story, BUT, change a few things – the setting, the order of the scenes, and …add a new scene – without changing the ending. The Lottery Reimagined challenges you to both probe the meaning of the original story; visualize it; and enhance it.
