Save yourself $2.00 by buying the bundle! This zip file features two PowerPoints, one for each short story! It also includes additional response questions for "A Rose for Emily" and a mostly multiple choice quiz for "The Painted Door"!
Both short stories feature a female character and I generally link the two short stories together for informal analysis. You can find the text for the two short stories online for free or at your local library.
In both lessons, I try to model what close reading looks like. Therefore the PowerPoints are a bit text heavy because I would use it to point out key words/lines and instruct students to annotate their copy of the text.
Both are fantastic short stories! "The Painted Door" is an excellent example of Canadian literature and "A Rose for Emily" is a great example of Southern Gothic literature!
