Ghost Tour Dictionary



Keep a log of the places you visit on the tour and, after you complete each stop, rate it for how scary it is on the Scare-O-Meter below. It’s all subjective, of course, this is your personal opinion about how these stops measure up to your expectations. But some are more effective at creating that eerie mood than others.

So, be warned … Mwaaahahahah!


Mark where each stop rates for you,

five being the scariest.




First Stop: 

Ghostly Explanations http://www.deathreference.com/En-Gh/Ghosts.html#b Scroll down and begin reading at "Encounters with Ghosts." What are some main distinctions between poltergeists, felt ghosts, dream ghosts, demonic ghosts, conjured ghosts?Now, scroll down to the photograph dated c. 1910. What’s a question that this photograph brings to mind?

Skim through the rest of the page; stopping to read closely if there’s something that particularly interests you. Once you’re finished, complete your reflection below plus the scare-o-meter, and move on. If you dare.

Turn and look at a person sitting next to you. If you had to choose a type of ghost for that person to hunt, which type would you choose?

Reflections: What conclusions can you draw from this site?

Learning Targets

1) I can apply the skill of scanning

(briefly look through a text for content, format, etc.), 2) I can apply the skill of skimming (examining the content, text features, the layout, and then read the highlights), and then, 3) I can read and analyze selected sections of the nonfiction pieces that follow.

Some of these pieces are rather lengthy, so be sure to follow the process in your learning targets. 


Second Stop: Conducting a Ghost Hunt http://www.wikihow.com/Conduct-a-Ghost-Hunt (Watch out for ads on this page. Careful not to click one.) Skim through the web site and read the headings. 1. Write a brief summary presenting an overview of the most important information about conducting a ghost hunt. 2. Have you ever been on a ghost hunt or tour? ________3. If so, describe your experience. 4. If not, would you ever go on a ghost hunt? ______________

Why or why not? Explain your thinking.

Stop: The Winchester House http://winchestermysteryhouse.com/sightings.cfm Visit the stairs that go nowhere, the miles of twisted hallways, and secret passageways. More than one hundred rooms that defy the imagination. Dare to go! Now!Start by reading the sightings (on the page entitled “Sightings”). Skim through the accounts. Choose one to read. What is your opinion of this account? 2. Click on some of the other rooms (e.g., the Thirteenth Bathroom, the Séance Room, and skim through the accounts. Read a few you find interesting. Which room seems the scariest to you? Why?

3. Skim through the website and write down two interesting facts. (Remember, a fact is indisputable, something that cannot be argued. If a statement can be argued, it is an opinion.)

Aficionado - a person who is knowledgeable and enthusiastic about a topic – dictionary.com

True ghost story aficionados are familiar with the mastery of H.P. Lovecraft. He is famous for being one of the greatest horror writers. Stephen King referred to him as “the twentieth century’s greatest practitioner of the classic horror tale.”

Lovecraft’s language takes some work and time to get used to (it’s so worth it, though), therefore you might want to start with one of his excellent but shorter stories - “The Outsiders,” “Colour Out of Space,” or “From Beyond.” Get started by scanning and skimming, to see which story you might like. Then find one that seems interesting to


and start reading. You may read the rest at home … in the darkness … all by yourself. Now that’s how to read a scary story! We’ll decide the logistics of that later. Right now – just pick a story.
