This analysis worksheet asks students to take a careful look at the language and literary devices used by Roald Dahl in "Lamb to the Slaughter". Students will have to find evidence, make inferences, and support their claims about various aspects of the story. Literary devices targeted for this analysis are: characterization, irony (situational and dramatic), setting, and mood. This worksheet comes with a teacher's copy answer key.

Log in to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Analyze how an author’s choices concerning how to structure a text, order events within it (e.g., parallel plots), and manipulate time (e.g., pacing, flashbacks) create such effects as mystery, tension, or surprise.
Analyze how complex characters (e.g., those with multiple or conflicting motivations) develop over the course of a text, interact with other characters, and advance the plot or develop the theme.
Cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text.
