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 direct/indirect characterization activity.
All student handouts are included in both PDF and Google Drive formats.
This lesson is best for advanced middle school or high school students.
