PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Monkey's Paw Close Reading Assignment: This close reading assignment for "The Monkey's Paw" is aligned with the common core state standards (reading literature and writing) and requires students to go back to selected passages from the text to read and closely analyze the conflict and theme in the story.

With an emphasis placed on close reading, students will gain a better understanding of W. W. Jacobs' short story, as well as increase their understanding of figurative language, foreshadowing, and mood. Students will then be able to write a one-paragraph literary response that includes quotations and analysis for each literary element: figurative language, foreshadowing, and mood.

This assignment includes:
- Suggested lesson plan
- 8 pages of close reading passages with space for student notes and quotes
- 3 differentiated writing tasks
- An annotation guide
- 2 rubrics for grading
