I chose to include five short stories that my middle school students find particularly engaging within this unit. Each short story is supplemented with a Before, During, and After Reading activity as well as a summative assessment.
This unit includes resources for the following five short stories:
• The Most Dangerous Game by Richard Connell
• Charles by Shirley Jackson
• Lamb to the Slaughter by Roald Dahl
• Thank You, Ma’am by Langston Hughes (paired with Mother to Son, a poem by Langston Hughes)
• The Interlopers by Saki
I aligned my content to sixth grade Common Core English/Language Arts Literature standards, but it could also be used in in seventh, eighth, and ninth grades. This unit includes short stories all middle schoolers will enjoy and benefit from!
