Product Description
Before teaching The Old Man and the Sea, I teach a few Hemingway short stories to give my students a feel for his writing, and these questions about "Hills Like White Elephants" always lead to one our the best discussions of the year.
The students are told to read the story for homework and answer the "first reading" set of questions. I tell them to do their best, but that I do not expect them to get #2 right. Usually, a couple students per class realize the story is about an abortion.
The next day, we examine parts of the story that reveal what the "operation" is, and the students read the story again. They then complete the "second reading" questions with partners, and we discuss the story. There is an especially spirited discussion about whether the man loves Jig.
My classes are 76 minutes long, which is a perfect length for this lesson.
