Product Description
Your ELL and/or Special Ed. students will be able to compare and contrast, discuss literary elements such as irony, improve vocabulary and their knowledge of two American holidays -Thanksgiving and Christmas after having read five famous American short stories by O.Henry AKA William Sydney Porter.

This file includes ten items left in Power point and/or word for you to edit freely to meet the needs of your beginner to low intermediate ELLs. In addition to the items linked below I have included a six page bonus file worksheet for students to complete while reading New York Stories: Soapy's Choice, A Walk in Amnesia, Tildy's Moment and The Christmas Presents (AKA The Gift of the Magi)
