Description

Use the classic short story, “The Necklace” by Guy de Maupassant, to teach your students the elements of literary analysis. This two-day lesson plan includes a full-text copy of this public domain story, an 8-question student handout (with detailed answer key, of course), an interactive slide lecture (both Prezi Next and Google Slides versions included) to help your students learn how to analyze text as they connect the author’s setting to the character development of Mathilde Loisel, and an optional homework writing assignment.

All student handouts are included in both PDF and Google Drive formats.

This lesson is best for advanced middle school or high school students.
