Exploring the pedagogical power of the monstrous, this collection of fresh essays provides curriculum and teaching strategies that use our cultural fascination with monsters to enhance learning in high school and college courses. The contributors explore the implications of inviting fearsome creatures into the classroom and describe how they work to create compelling narrative and illustrative models. Topics include gender, sexuality and rhetoric in monster literature; monsters as subversive imagination; teaching monstrosity in American Gothic narratives; and using zombies to teach theater. Some essays provide sample syllabi, assignments and class materials.
