Product Description
This BUNDLED product contains two short story units: One for "HARRISON BERGERON" by Kurt Vonnegut, and one for "THE LOTTERY" by Shirley Jackson.

These dystopian short stories would be great to study on their own, but they could also serve as a perfect introduction to a full dystopian novel unit like THE HUNGER GAMES, THE GIVER, FAHRENHEIT 451, 1984, DIVERGENT, and many others. This unit would also be an excellent pairing with my FREE "CREATING A DYSTOPIA" activity.

INCLUDED IN THIS DOWNLOAD:

"THE LOTTERY" UNIT
- A vocabulary analysis worksheet
- A vocabulary quiz with answer sheet
- A reading quiz with answer sheet
- A fun Wikipedia article writing assignment in which students write a "non-fiction" article about the history of the Lottery, complete with a PowerPoint introduction, several scaffolding handouts, and two versions of a Wikipedia article template (one digital and one printable)
- A helpful teacher's guide with links to specific Common-Core Standards

"HARRISON BERGERON" UNIT
- A vocabulary analysis worksheet
- A vocabulary quiz with answer sheet
- A reading quiz with answer sheet

- A helpful teacher's guide with links to specific Common-Core Standards

The unit files come in PDF format for easy printing, but I've also included the original Word and Excel files in case you want to make minor tweaks.


Enjoy, and don't forget to write a review!
