PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Introduce your English students to a famous Irish writer on St Patrick's Day. Oscar Wilde's "The Happy Prince" is an allegory that teaches some valuable lessons and provides students the opportunity to practice their analytical skills, as they look for irony, symbolism, juxtaposition and theme.

Students will read the story and answer questions, then work in groups to develop theme statements and to discuss the story as an allegory. Finally, they will write some limericks that illustrate their knowledge of the story.

The zip file includes a copy of the story, which is in the public domain, as well as answer keys and graphic organizers. I have also included several slides to help guide your class discussions.
