This is a homework assignment for Frank Stockton's short story "The Lady or the Tiger?"
It contains the story itself as well as a small set of homework questions. It also contains a paragraph assignment related to the short story with a small rubric.
I gave this to my grade 9s after reviewing what I expect from a well-structured paragraph. Students are to then write a paragraph response based on what they've read as well as what they've learned about paragraph structure.
During certain years if there's time I may also read it with the class and role model close reading as I do so. Although I gave this to my grade 9 students, I think this story is suitable for grades 7-10.
