Product Description

This is an annotated version of the short story "Markheim," by Robert Lewis Stevenson.

  • All vocabulary is defined in text [in brackets] to facilitate reading comprehension for struggling readers.
  • In-text guiding questions chunk the text into smaller passages to assist students with close-reading. Students never read more than two paragraphs without checking for understanding questions.
  • Text is abridged without interrupting flow to make this complex reading accessible to readers of all abilities.
  • These modifications are especially helpful for ELLs, SPED, and general education students who struggle reading complex texts.

Sample of annotations:

"Yes," said the dealer, "our windfalls [profits] are of various kinds. Some customers are ignorant you see, and then I earn a dividend [profit] on my superior knowledge. Some are dishonest, and in that case, I profit by my virtue [his honesty]" he stated.

Markheim had but just entered from the daylight streets, and his eyes had not yet grown familiar with the mingled shine and darkness in the shop. At these pointed words, and before the near presence of the flame, he blinked painfully and looked aside. The dealer chuckled.

"You come to me on Christmas Day, Mr. Markheim, when you know that I am alone in my shop, my shutters put up, and make a point of refusing business. Well, you will have to pay for that; you will have to pay for my loss of time, when I should be upstairs balancing my books; you will have to pay, besides, for a kind of a manner that I remark in you today very strongly. Not to worry. I’m the essence of discretion, and ask no awkward questions; but when a customer cannot look me in the eye, he has to pay for it. Now I can presume you can give, as usual, a clear account of how you came to possess whatever it is you brought me this time?" he continued. "Another item from your uncle's cabinet, I suppose? A remarkable collector [his uncle], wouldn’t you agree, Mr. Markheim?"

Sample questions:

What kind of shop do you think this is? What evidence supports your inference?

Reread the first paragraph: now that you know what kind of shop this is. What is the dealer saying?

Why would the dealer ask whether the items have come from his “uncle’s cabinet”?

Why does he say he’s a “remarkable collector”? Make an inference…..
