    This close reading bundle includes close reading assignments for six short stories: The Gift of the Magi, The Most Dangerous Game, The Interlopers, The Necklace, The Cask of Amontillado, and The Monkey's Paw. All of the close reading text passages and assignments are aligned with the common core standards (reading literature and writing) and require students to go back to text and closely read and analyze the passage for certain literary elements.

    Using these assignments with an emphasis placed on close reading, students will gain a better understanding of the short stories and they will increase their understanding of theme, conflict, suspense, tone, mood, foreshadowing, figurative language, and characterization. Students will then be able to write a one-paragraph literary response that includes quotations and analysis.

    This bundle contains all of these assignments:

    The Gift of the Magi Close Reading Assignment

    The Monkey's Paw Close Reading Assignment

    The Necklace Close Reading Assignment

    The Cask of Amontillado Close Reading Assignment

    The Interlopers Close Reading Assignment

    The Most Dangerous Game Close Reading Assignment


    This bundle also includes all of the Google Slides versions for all of the short stories.
