Product Description

George Orwell's "Shooting an Elephant" is a great short story about the consequences of fear, power, and identity. These questions will help students analyze the text at depth, focusing their reading and considering symbolism, point of view, and historical context. This works well alone or as part of a larger unit of short stories.
