  1. A Rose for Emily" is by far one of my favorite short stories of all time and I am delighted to be able to share my lesson plans with you! There is so much fun dialogue and so may inferences that can happen with this literary work. It’s a great short story to discuss characterization, foreshadowing
  2. "Trifles" is a wonderful one act play that really helps students learn about gender roles and stereotypes in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. First produced in 1916, the play's themes and topics are still just as applicable as they were then! This is an excellent resource to use
  3. Roald Dahl is a loved author and well renowned for his creativity and resilient characters! His short story, "Lamb to the Slaughter" is no exception! With this lesson plan students will be able to dig deeply into the text searching for irony, and practicing their analytical abilities for inference
