The following three-page document is a pre-reading, during reading, and post-reading to help students better analyze and understand Saki's short story "The Open Window." The first page is an anticipation guide that includes statements that will require students to later respond to the choices characters make in the work. The second page includes a list of the archaic vocabulary words Saki uses so students can understand what they mean prior to reading the story. The same worksheet also contains comprehension questions to guide their reading of the work. The final and third page contains discussion questions for students to work on by themselves or discuss with peers to understand the irony, plot, point of view, style, and themes of the short story.
