Use the classic short story, “The Most Dangerous Game” by Richard Connell to teach your students the elements of literary analysis. This three-day lesson plan includes the full-text 9-page story (public domain), an 8-question student handout (with detailed answer key/class discussion starters), a simile hunt worksheet (also with answer key), and an optional writing/creative activity where students can choose from a menu of four options as they dig deeper into their understanding of the text.
This lesson is best for advanced middle school or high school students.
