Product Description
Alice Walker’s shortest of short stories, “The Flowers,” is an excellent piece with which to study inference, as there is more left unsaid than explicitly stated, forcing students to closely study narrative details to make educated guesses as to what happened to the victim in the story. However, if students lack sufficient background knowledge, they may be unable to make those inferences, and key plot points and themes may go right over their heads.

This FREE pre-reading web quest will ensure students fully understand and appreciate this compact but many-layered tale. Using the enclosed worksheet along with a computer, tablet or cell phone, students research vocabulary words, historical context and author background on the Internet to collect key details that will bolster their understanding of all the facets of the story. Particularly helpful for struggling readers, it provides the foundation they need to make the necessary inferences to fully grasp the plot and themes of “The Flowers.”
