O'Henry's Gift of the Magi, Last Leaf, Ransom of Red Chief, and After 20 years are featured in this unit. Each story is adapted into a reader's theatre. Each story also has comprehension quiz, skills quiz, and discussion questions. Each skills test has two versions- a multiple choice and an open-ended for easy differentiation. There is also a web quest to build background knowledge on O'Henry's life.
