So, what we have created for you are analysis pages for the short story, “The Lady, or the Tiger?” by Frank R. Stockton. We know, we’re excited about it, too! We use these amazing analysis sheets to monitor our students’ understanding of the various elements of fiction and literary devices. We also use these analysis sheets to monitor reading comprehension when our classes are reading literary texts.

After explicitly teaching our students the various elements of literature, we wrap up our unit by having our students practice their newly developed response to literature skills. They do this by reading various short stories and analyzing them. Our favorites are “The Monkey’s Paw”, “The Lottery”, “Why I Hit My Boyfriend”, and “Truth About Sharks”.

“The Lady, or the Tiger?” analysis pages cover a variety of elements of fiction, such as:

  • character
  • figurative language
  • plot
  • conflict
  • theme
  • irony.

Lastly, the analysis sheets have students practice utilizing reading strategies such as:

  • making connections
  • questioning
  • visualizing
  • predicting
  • inferring
  • vocabulary

Our favorite page is the doodle notes page where students can show their creative side. Students can color the page and doodle while listening to the story or while silently reading the story themselves.

We hope that you and your students enjoy reading and analyzing “The Lady, or the Tiger?” Drop us a line if you have any questions, comments, or concerns teachingdistillery@gmail.com. Be sure to check out our blog for other cool ideas: https://www.theteachingdistillery.com
