Product Description

"Cross Country Snow" is a short story written by Ernest Hemingway. The story was first published in 1924 in Ford Madox Ford's literary magazine Transatlantic Review in Paris and republished by Boni & Liveright in Hemingway's first American volume of short stories In Our Time in 1925. The story features Hemingway's recurrent autobiographical character Nick Adams and explores the regenerative powers of nature and the joy of skiing.


"Cross-Country Snow"
Nick and his friend, George, go skiing in Switzerland. They stop at a little pub to discuss their future. The waitress at their table is pregnant, as is a woman at home, called Helen. George explains that he needs to return to school despite Nick's insistence that he stay and ski across Europe. After they finish their drinks, they return home for the night, looking forward to the skiing they will do the next day. (Wikipedia)


This is teaching materials for a short story that would be considered traditional. The assessments included vocabulary acquisition, critical thinking questions, and recall or comprehension questions on one sheet. These questions come in the forms of a mixture of matching, short answer, and multiple-choice. By completing this sheet, the student will demonstrate an understanding of the material on multiple levels.


The other assessment is a creative art sheet. The creative art sheet asks the student to use the details from the story and their own knowledge, experiences, and imagination to synthesize a totally new work, this is a picture that is a visual representation that recreates a scene, character or maybe the student's use or view of an aspect of the story. Along with this picture the student will explain their work with a short explanation.

NOTE: I have decided to include the Word Documents that the PDFs are created from so that if you would like to customize the unit for your classroom you can. However, I have used formatting and custom fonts that are not standard with many versions of Microsoft office. This may mean that opening them with a different version of office or without the same fonts installed will throw the formatting off. If so it may take some work to adapt them in your class. I am including them as an extra and would ask that I am not rated on the usability of the Word Docs. Since they are not the finished product, but an extra.
