Product Description
This is a lesson I did for my grade 11 class on Sinclair Ross' "The Painted Door". You can find the full text of the short story online.

The short story is longer than what my students are used to, but it is subtle and a good meaty text for analysis. I use it to role model close reading and to touch upon literary ideas such as internal/external conflict and characterization.

The PowerPoint is a bit text heavy because I use it to show selected paragraphs from the short story. I then point out the parts for close reading and model how a reader would analyze for meaning. It ends with some homework questions for students to expand upon their learning.

This is also a good story to use if you want to introduce some Canadian literature into your classroom. :)

I've also included in this listing a short quiz that you can use. The quiz is mostly multiple choice with three short answers. It's mainly used to assess students' reading comprehension. It is not a quiz on the analysis of the short story.

For only two dollars more you can buy it as part of a bundle!
