These activities are based on the short story "The Ransom of Red Chief" by O. Henry. There are comprehension/discussion questions for the students as a class, literature circle, or individual to answer, as well as a focus on the elements of literature and vocabulary. There is a graphic organizer for the elements of literature and a worksheet that focuses on direct and indirect characterization. I think you will love this because it allows students to analyze the story and puts all of the elements in once place for them. In addition there are activities that include a quick journal prompt, bubble map, and a worksheet students can fill out while they watch the movie. Finally, a story cube is included as a fun and quick way to review the elements of literature.
