“The Lottery”: Re-Imagined (LA)



The Challenge: 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.
