This resource was created to be used with the short story, “The Necklace” by Guy de Maupassant. The Story Map provides the students with a visual to enhance comprehension that targets the Common core State Standards for Literature. The student Story Map is ready to duplicate for classroom use and teacher key for the test is included. Other resources are also available for “The Necklace” on my site including a Multiple Choice test (three choices) and a Modified Multiple Choice Test (two choices), and a Reading Guide for enhanced Comprehension, and a Creative Writing Prompt and Rubric for the students to add to the ending of the story. Tests and all other reading activities have been aligned to Common Core State Standards.
