Elements of Plot: Short Story Bundle
This middle school bundle includes a lesson plan, a graphic organizer, and 3 plot diagrams with answer keys.
The 3 short story lessons included in this bundle are:
"The Lottery" by Shirley Jackson
"The Sniper" by Liam O'Flaherty
"The Gift of the Magi" by O. Henry
All of the materials that I am including in this bundled unit download are sold separately on TPT. Below are the links to those individual products:
The Gift of the Magi
Use this lesson and graphic organizer to teach students the elements of plot, and how the plot unfolds in a series of episodes!
Tied to the Common Core standards.
****Includes a LESSON PLAN, and a thorough ANSWER KEY for each story!****
The lesson plan uses the Gradual Release of Responsilbity method: I do, we do, you do.
The answer key will free up time, as the plot diagram has been filled out for you!
Using this handout will dramatically improve students' reading comprehension. It will also enable students to have discussions about the plot of a short story, how the characters respond to conflict, and how they change as a result.
