Free to Believe: How to Write a Terrifying Ghost Story

Halloween is around the corner! Want to write a super scary ghost story with your students? Here’s a free lesson plan by Lisa Brown and Adele Griffin. The lesson is scarily perfect for all ages. Ghost stories make great writing exercises, because they’re even better when they’re short.

Both of the Don’t Forget to Write books contain 50 writing lesson plans created by acclaimed authors, educators, and dedicated 826 volunteers. Contributors include Dave Eggers, Jon Scieszka, Sarah Vowell, and many more fantastic folks.

Also, you should boo your way over to Lisa and Adele’s website—Picture the Dead—don’t be afraid to submit your ghost story there!
