This classic short story about revenge and murder will raise the hair on the back of your students’ necks! This lesson will take one-two class periods to complete depending on if you do the pre-reading vocabulary the class before you read the story or not.
There are nine activities of which you can do as many or as few as you choose to do. Several graphic organizers are included as well as all KEYs. Some can be assigned as homework.
The unit contains:
• Pre-reading vocabulary worksheet
• Quiz over vocabulary
• Short background information and journal or thought question
• Suggestions on reading the story
• Close reading questions
• Higher order thinking questions concerning synthesizing and evaluating
• Graphic organizer on interpreting literary terms: setting, point of view, and symbol

This is also a great lesson to have on hand for a substitute but I prefer teaching this thriller myself. Have fun!
