Description

Use the classic short story, “The Interlopers,” by Saki (H.H. Munro) to teach your students the elements of literary analysis. This one-day lesson plan includes a full-text copy of the public domain story, a six-question deep-thinking exercise (with detailed answer key, of course), and an optional writing activity that shows students step-by-step how to build a newspaper article. You could easily extend this one-day lesson into two days by allowing in-class time to complete the journalism portion of the assignment in your school’s computer lab.

All student handouts are included in both PDF and Google Drive formats.

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