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.

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