PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a short story I assigned to my grade 11 class. If you don't have the text, I find that you can do a search online and someone would have it posted online for free.

Personally I LOVE the short story! It's a great example of Southern Gothic literature and features a nice twist at the end! It's a little spooky so it's perfect for Halloween. :D

This lesson is also my free sample for TpT. You can find a shorten version of this lesson here: Short Story Analysis Sample: A Rose for Emily. The sample however only contain 21 slides. This one is the full lesson with 36 slides.

I've also included in this listing a separate handout with more questions that you can assign to students for homework or review.

I use this short story to teach the following:

- Close reading
- Analyzing a text for meaning (characterization, foreshadowing, theme, mood, symbolism, etc.)

I also use the PowerPoint to informally model reading strategies such as asking questions, making predictions, context clues, and annotations.

The PowerPoint is a bit text heavy because I was using it to project parts of the text for the whole class to see. I then have slides underlining key lines/words and talk about how they add to our understanding of the story.

The PowerPoint ends with some questions for homework that are meant to further a student's analysis and understanding of the short story. There is one question on "The Painted Door" because that was the story I started the unit with. I was trying to link the stories together to lead to a paragraph assignment later.
