- Write a creepy descriptive passage with a sense of gothic decay.
- In this lesson we model descriptive writing off of one of the spookiest passages in J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the sequence in which Harry enters Bathilda Bagshot's house. We pay particular attention to how we create a sense of gloom and decay.
