PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Updated! This package of documents features numerous materials for teaching Shirley Jackson's 1948 short story "The Lottery." Includes an introduction activity (using real stones), guided reading questions (for recall/comprehension, analysis, applying, critical thinking), discussion questions, a character chart, extended activities, a 26-question quiz (15 multiple choice, 9 vocabulary matching, 2 short answer essay), and a theme comparison with the novel The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.

Updated to include files in three formats: Microsoft Word, PDF, and Mac's iWork Pages. It also includes the text to the story, in case you need a copy.

Jackson's use of irony, symbolism, and foreshadowing are all discussed, practiced, and evaluated in this lesson.

INCLUDES ANSWER KEYS!

Great companion to my The Hunger Games Teaching Unit or use independently.

Product Questions & Answers

On  September 6, 2013mds3567 (TpT Seller) asked:
Tracee,

I was looking to have juniors/seniors read this short story because it is mentioned in Sleeping Freshman Never Lie. These students are doing a recovery credit for Language Arts and I need something to keep their interest for 2 hours. This would only be part of my lesson for them, but my question is would they find your content included too young for them? Or would they enjoy this just as much as say a 7th grader?

Thank You,
Michelle

On  September 6, 2013Tracee Orman answered:
Hi Michelle - I teach high school and I've always thought that the story was definitely geared more toward high schoolers than middle school students. I read it when I was a junior in high school and I currently read it with freshmen and sophomores. I don't think it will be too young at all and there are discussion points that can be expanded into projects (one year I had a group of boys research human sacrifice in history). Anyway, I definitely don't think they will think it's too young. Good luck! -Tracee

Hi onepinkbunny - I'm sorry you are having difficulties finding it. It is in the file called "TheLotteryQuestionsQuiz." Make sure you open the PDF in case your Word or Pages version is not formatted because of the images or fonts (some versions read the files differently). If you don't see that file you'll want to redownload. (I just did and they were all there.) I hope that helps! -Tracee

I just downloaded it to test and there are 14 item inside. You must unzip the folder. If you have a Mac, when you double-click it will open up a brand new folder in your Downloads. If you have a PC, you may have to have a program to unzip it. I can email it to you if you are still having difficulties. My address is listed below.
