This Common Core Short Story O. Henry Lesson Bundle uses the Common Core Reading standards and contains QUESTIONS and ANSWERS (for O. Henry's short stories "The Gift of the Magi," "After Twenty Years," and "The Cactus") modeled after various state exams. One of the things I struggle with the most is preparing my students for all kinds of exams that they will encounter. With this EASY-TO-TEACH Lesson Bundle, you can practice with your students, so they will feel more confident for state assessments while reading classic literature. It is great for pull-outs, push-ins, whole group, small group, or sub plans.
