Fun culminating project for "The Necklace" by Guy de Maupassant. Like many of the classic stories read in English classes, “The Necklace” is written and set in the past. The characters do not have many of the modern tools available today. Students will examine the impact of various technologies on the story and retell the story briefly showing the way things would be different if modernized. Rubric included.
• Modernize It! Technology’s Impact on “The Necklace” worksheet—can be used as a prewriting activity for the project, or as a stand-alone activity for examination or discussion of the effect of a modern setting and technology.
• Modernize “The Necklace” Student printable with rubric—includes student instructions to remain true to the original story while addressing impact of (select) technology in a modern version of the story.
