Product Description
Use the short story, “The Gift of the Magi” by American writer O. Henry, to teach your students the elements of literary analysis, get them thinking deeply about the text, and provide opportunities for creative writing. This two-day lesson plan includes a beautifully illustrated copy of the story, an 8-question deep-thinking exercise (with detailed answer key, of course), and two options for creative writing assignments with specific literary techniques for the students to include in their own O. Henry-inspired work of fiction. As a bonus, there’s also an mp3 file if you’d like an actor to read the story to your class.

This lesson is best for advanced middle school or high school students.
