PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

These activities are based on the short story "Monkey's Paw" by W.W. Jacobs. The story introduces the concepts of irony and superstition. There are comprehension/discussion questions for the students as a class, literature circle, or individual to answer. There is also a graphic organizer for the elements of literature. I think you will love this because it allows students to analyze the story and puts all of the elements in once place for them. This also includes a writing assignment (see the preview) in which students can choose between three different topics related to the story, and a talk show format assignment that includes students as a class acting as the characters.

If you see short stories in my store that you would also like to bundle, please email me at stscott@ek12schools.com and I can build a packet of 5 stories for $10 to meet your classroom needs.
