Product Description
This Common Core resource includes an annotated version of Shirley Jackson's short story, "The Lottery." The teacher-created guided reading questions and marginal notes include alignment using the language of Common Core State Standards. The guided reading questions will help students delve deeper into the complex themes, figurative and connotative meanings, imagery, story structure, irony, and mood that have made it a literary classic. The primary reading literary standards are RL1, RL2, RL4, RL5, RL6. Critical reading of literary texts is a critical component of the Common Core State Standards, and analyzing texts is a key skill that students will need for college and the jobs of the future. The critical foci of the annotations and guided reading questions include:
1. Figurative and connotative meanings
2. Analyzing themes and their development over the course of the text.
3. Mood and its development
4. Irony
5. Imagery
6. Author's Purpose
7. Story Structure (foreshadowing)
8. Inferences

The product also includes a blank copy of the short story so that you can help your students learn how to annotate the text and make their own marginal notes and write their own Common Core guided reading questions.
