This fifty minute lesson will have students define unknown words and answer questions relating to O. Henry's short story, "The Cop and the Anthem."
Students will grasp the concept of situational irony while reading the humorous story.
A lesson plan is included for instructions:
*A worksheet for students with the following:
Reading Comprehension Questions
Text of the Short Story
(Questions are embedded within the text, so it is clear when a question has been answered.)
*There are two quizzes in your packet for differentiated instruction.
*A comic strip activity is included for students to create their own representation of the short story.
This lesson would also be perfect for substitute plans!
