Product Description
Looking for a short story unit ready to print and pass out today?

Included in this comprehensive 32 page document are 14 creative lesson plans on ten of the most well-known short stories read in middle and high school classrooms. The lesson plans start with a quick introduction/review to the elements of a short story (plot, setting, character, them and more, with plot line triangle review), includes a short quiz you can use at any time or as a diagnostic (can your students give an example of conflict or figurative language from a model short story?) and continues on to short story reads with detailed lesson plans on how to analyze each story.

Journaling homework for each story accompanies each lesson, which is optional for you to assign but certainly allows for great assessment every step of the way.

Lessons included in this particular unit are the short stories: The True Story of the Three Little Pigs, The Cask of Amontillado,The Lottery, A & P, Gentlemen Your Verdict, The Sniper, The Fall of a City, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Two Fishermen, and a movie: The Big Snit.

Again, included are:
- Unit overview;
- 14 detailed lesson plans with teacher's notes- just follow along;
- Links to all of the classic short stories online, in case you don't have these;
- Assessments & activities for each story, including an introductory review and assessment on the basic elements of literature;
- 2 unit assessment overviews- 1 creative writing assignment and 1 presentation assignment.

This unit plan is designed so that a teacher can follow the day plans as they please. The unit can be taught as a whole, containing everything needed, or can be easily integrated into your current unit. For more information please see the thumbnails, or download the sample.

Great for checking student comprehension through analysis and writing or just for review on elements of literature. A must have short story unit!
