These activities were carefully crafted to require students to dig deep into literature analysis through the reading of "The Monkey's Paw" and "The Landlady" .
Students are asked to practice skills aligned with CCSS such as : using evidence, making inferences and connections, identify examples of author's craft, summarizing, etc.
You can use this in a variety of settings. You might have students read with partners, small groups, or assign particular pages for h.w. Either way, it is a great way to have students close read literature that also happen to be exciting, suspenseful reading experiences!
