Product Description

Empower your students to become media critics as they examine two versions of Kate Chopin’s compelling short story, “Désirée’s Baby.” By using a close reading of Chopin’s original text and a modern retelling of the story from the popular Fictional podcast, students will be equipped to meet the complex requirements of CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.9-10.7: Analyze the representation of a subject or a key scene in two different artistic mediums, including what is emphasized or absent in each treatment.

This download includes a full-text copy of the public domain story, a link to an audio version of an actor reading “Desiree’s Baby,” a 10-question short answer question sheet (with detailed answer key, of course), and a link to the 29-minute podcast.
