- Reading Check questions for the main plot,
- A sequencing exercise for the story-within-a-story, including an explanation of that term,
- Two analysis writing prompts, on their own writing paper,
- A discussion of 1st Person Perspective, with examples and practice from the story itself,
- Teacher Suggestions.
