"The Lottery" Short Story Literature Guide

This package of documents features numerous materials for teaching Shirley Jackson's 1948 short story "The Lottery." Includes an introduction activity (using real stones), guided reading questions (for recall/comprehension, analysis, applying, critical thinking), discussion questions, a character chart, extended activities, a 26-question quiz (15 multiple choice, 9 vocabulary matching, 2 short answer essay), and a theme comparison with the novel The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.

EDITABLE! Updated to include files in two formats: Microsoft Word and PDF. It also includes the text to the story, in case you need a copy.

Jackson's use of irony, symbolism, and foreshadowing are all discussed, practiced, and evaluated in this lesson.


Great companion to my The Hunger Games Teaching Unit or use independently.
