The Lottery by Shirley Jackson is a fantastic and famous short story centered around a small, rural town that comes together to draw lots. If you have not read it, I will not spoil the ending here, but be assured it is a doozy.
This mini unit focuses on vocabulary, analyzing text, irony, and much more.
Included is a copy of the full text, vocabulary puzzle with key, and discussion questions with answers.
The students are challenged by this story, but great discussions and questions arise from reading of it.
