A packet to accompany O. Henry's short story, A Retrieved Reformation. This short story is commonly included in literature anthologies and textbooks, and can be easily accessed for free online.
Activities include vocabulary, predicting, inferring, connecting, and questioning, as well as character and literary analysis, plot mapping, and a synthesizing writing activity.
I generally print this packet on 11x17 paper using my copier's "pamphlet" function to create a single page document folded down the center. I find that these booklets are less likely to be lost and pages do not fall out. Students can also easily access two pages at once.
I welcome your questions and feedback!
