PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Use the short story "A Rose for Emily" by William Faulkner to teach students about craft and structure. Faulkner's decision to tell the story out of sequence contributes to the story's successful and shocking ending. Use of a journal will activate their thinking about the plot and themes of the story. Discussion questions ask students to probe deeply to interpret characters and events and understand symbols and themes in the story. Students have the opportunity to analyze the title of the story either through a writing assignment or Socratic seminar. A creative writing activity offers students the opportunity to write Emily Grierson's obituary.

Note: due to the mature language and themes used in the story, this lesson plan is best suited to high school students.
