The Dust Bowl Short Story You Need Now

A free short story!
We've got a special treat for you: a free short story to pair with our March narrative nonfiction feature, "Black Sunday."

This original work of short fiction was written just for Scope by Rebecca Behrens, one of our author faves. It's the story of a family on the Southern Plains that lived through Black Sunday—the most devastating dust storm in American history. 

Download the story here for free! You will also find a set of close-reading and critical-thinking questions to help your students make connections between the story and the nonfiction article in your printed issue.
