This 41 page document is great to use before beginning a larger Hemingway work, such as "Old Man and the Sea." Consider introducing the Hemingway Code (Style) first. This student packet allows for exploration of Heminingway and his style. It introduces 5 Hemingway short stories: "At the Quai in Smyrna," "Chapter 17," "The Old Man at the Bridge," "The Cat in the Rain," "Cross Country Snow," and "A Day's Wait." The packet has students working with quotations, examples, style, literary elements, and group presentation. The group presentation really affords the opportunity for the students to experience how to analyze Hemingway on their own (not always an easy task). Also included in this product is a creative writing activity, teacher notes on style, the coordinating worksheets for homework and group work, an example test, and a New York State Critical Lens Esaay question. I am not going to misrepresent this product: This is a hard unit (meant for 11th and 12th grade). In addition, THIS IS NOT A "HOW TO TEACH HEMINGWAY" PRODUCT. It does include some helpful analysis, but will not tell you how to analyze Hemingway or his stories. The short stories are not sold with this product due to copyright laws. The teacher who buys this product must be willing to learn more about Hemingway before presenting the unit and have the ability to teach complex literary concepts. You will, however, be incredibly pleased with the layout of materials and the challenge it will provide for your students. Hemingway may be a grumpy old writer who hates his mother, but his work is incredibly useful for learning how to read well. Thanks for your interest!
