Product Description
This is a great way to start off the year and introduce responding to literature. My students often struggle with analyzing and interpreting aspects of a story without giving a plot summary. This unit guides students through beginning aspects of responding to literature, including the analysis of themes, characters, learned lessons, connections, quotations, and what they would change.

Students are read The Veldt by Ray Bradbury in class and see a sample presentation analyzing quotes from this story. As a class students will practice responding to the other aspects of this short story. As independent practice, students are allowed to choose a different short story and respond to one of the tasks in a presentation. I have included a feedback form for students to complete while watching others’ presentations.

Links are provided to the following stories:

→ The Veldt by Ray Bradbury
→ The Gift of the Magi by O. Henry
→ Rikki-Tikki-Tavi by Rudyard Kipling
→ The Necklace by Guy De Maupassant
→ The Landlady by Roald Dahl
→ Just So Stories by Rudyard Kipling
→ Summer All in a Day by Ray Bradbury
→ The Lottery by Shirley Jackson
→ Harrison Bergeron by Kurt Vonnegut
→ Lamb to the Slaughter by Roald Dahl

This is a Google Drive compatible lesson. One of the many benefits of using Google Drive in the classroom is the freedom to edit your copy to fit the needs of your students. This also allows you to share the graphic organizers digitally to be compliant in a paperless classroom. However, if you want to print any portion of this lesson you are able to do so directly from your drive.

Included in this lesson

☞ Unit plan for teacher
☞ Google Slides presentation ( 1-2 Class periods)
☞ Responding to The Veldt task practice
☞ Responding to the Task graphic organizer
☞ mini presentation feedback form
☞ links to all stories in the unit
