PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Looking for an engaging short story unit your students will enjoy while practicing close reading and literary analysis? This Common Core-aligned mega-pack (including detailed answer keys) can be used in whole or in part to help students connect to Kate Chopin’s classic short story, ”Story of an Hour,” while practicing the skills necessary for mastery of several Common Core State Standards. The packet includes:

• Detailed 1-3 Day Close Reading Lesson Plan—to enable students to read with a purpose, extract key concepts, and comprehend at a deeper level
• Copy of the Story—so students can mark up the text as they read; organized with numbered paragraphs for quick reference
• Thought-provoking Journal Prompts—to build interest and activate prior knowledge
• Text Analysis Activities—including directed note-taking, for individual and small group learning
• Engaging Reader Response Activities—to help students reflect upon their learning and write about it
• Thought-provoking Discussion Questions—to get students writing and talking about the most important concepts of the story
• Vocabulary Inventory—to introduce new words, determine which ones students need most help with pre-reading and to monitor growth afterwards
• Vocabulary Building—to help students learn new vocabulary by connecting to words in a meaningful way
• Plot Diagram—to help students record the most important events in the story
• Fun Theme Activity—to determine universal themes of the story and connect them with modern music
• Detailed Answer Keys—to save you time and generally make your life easier

The ability to closely read and analyze text is central to Common Core standards. Not only will students analyze Chopin’s short story, but they also will learn critical strategies on how to approach literary analysis in general.
