Engaging vocabulary study (with literary and writing activities) where students identify and use the words in context rather than studying words from a list.
This hauntingly beautiful selection by O Henry (included) is used as a mentor text in this unique vocabulary in context study.

The selection may later be used as whole class mentor text for further skill reinforcement and class discussion.
