The short story The Most Dangerous Game, written by Richard Connell in 1924, is set in a world that is foreign to most students who read it. By exploring the setting before reading, students will become familiar with the setting through their own findings and adventure.
Students should be able to piece together a summary of The Most Dangerous Game based on their exploration of the island. Ship-Trap Island is also a great way to discuss how important setting is to a story. You may even want to discuss the difference between a one-sentence description of the setting versus exploring an immersive world.
