Product Description
In this classic short story-turned-novella by Daniel Keyes, students learn empathy through the eyes of Charley, the childlike man who takes a risk and loses his innocence when opting for a risky surgery.

This bundle of eight activities will ensure that your students engage with the story on more than just an empathetic level. They will explore:
• Genre and subgenre
• Author’s purpose
• Characterization
• Mood and tone with text support
• Plot and subplot
• **Point-of-view, in an engaging choose-your-own-path graphic organizer
• Foreshadowing

They will also engage from the beginning with:
• An agree-disagree chart
• Vocabulary maps

And the study will culminate with the students’ text-based choice of one of two projects:
• An advertisement for others to get Charley’s surgery
• A protest sign against others having the surgery

Each of the eight low-prep activities in this download include:
• A fill-in-the-blank copy for students
• Answer keys upon request (see contact information below)

**Bonus! If you teach in a digital classroom, you can load any of these materials in as PDF onto your Learning Management System. However, I have also created the point-of-view activity as a PowerPoint where students can click to navigate. It’s awesome! Find it here if you want it!

The lessons should take about one week to complete, along with an in-class reading of the short story. If you are using the novella, your study would be longer.

Thanks for supporting a fellow teacher! So glad you stopped by!
