Don't bore your students with a list of study questions! Let them think like scientists and utilize their creativity as they dissect this intriguing short story. This includes a nicely-formatted full-text PDF of "The Birthmark" and an engaging worksheet that requires students to complete charts, "lab notes," sketches, and more in order to dissect the short story.
After using a plain and boring list of study questions my first year of teaching, I created this activity to better engage my students. Students who are more mathematically- or scientifically-minded will appreciate this fresh take on literary analysis.
