Product Description
I developed this lesson to help my students appreciate the nuances of story-telling. Yes, the beginning of the lesson teaches/reviews basic plot structure but then it asks students to think outside the box. What if a story had no exposition? What if it had too much rising action? What if it started with the resolution?

Then, we get specific, focusing on O. Henry’s “The Gift of the Magi” and how its non-formulaic plot structure is enhanced by situational irony.
This lesson includes
• A two-sided student worksheet on plot structure in general.
• A two-sided student worksheet for “The Gift of the Magi” focusing on plot structure, situational irony, and how the two intertwine.
• Answer keys for both worksheets
• CCSS alignment
Enjoy!
