Storyboard Text

  • Shirley Jackson
  • The children in the village gathered stones. This foreshadowed the stoning of someone or something.
  • Tessie Hutchinson's late arrival draws the reader's attention and foreshadows her as the sacrifice of the lottery.
  • Thought we were going to have to get on without you, Tessie.
  • Athough Tessie was late, she hurries Bill to the box, which is ironic.
  • Get up there, Bill.
  • The box symbolizes old traditions that are falling apart and need to be replaced.
  • The theme of this story is that blindly following outdated traditions can be bad, and we should rethink our actions.
  • People ain't the way they used to be...
  • It isn't fair!
