Product Description
"All is fair in love and war" in this activity featuring the classic short story "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge." Your students will delve into the language and style of the author, Ambrose Bierce! To begin, students find time clues in the text of the story, that help them identify the shift in time and perspective in the story. Next, students find examples in the text of personification, foreshadowing, and allusions. Then, students locate onomatopoeia and similes in the text. In the final activity, students are asked to draw a simple sketch of a scene from each of the three sections of the story (stick-people drawings).
