"The Necklace" Textual Evidence Mingle → Editable files!
My students thoroughly enjoyed this textual evidence lesson designed to accompany a reading of “The Necklace”—yours will, too! This lesson is for students who have already completed one reading of Maupassant’s short story. Each student will complete a warm-up discussion activity and then receive a single statement to prove or disprove using textual evidence from the story. Students will then stand up with their statements and evidence to mingle around the room, finding different discussion partners. I use music during my mingle activities—I’ve included a link to “A Sky Full of Stars” by Coldplay within the PowerPoint.
Following the mingle activity, students will participate in a debriefing activity to assess their understanding of the events in the text. Finally, students will complete an exit ticket which requires them to comment on Madame Loisel's character.
If you are looking for a fun, hands-on activity to deepen your students’ understanding and appreciation of “The Necklace,” you really can’t go wrong with this lesson!
COMING SOON: More hands-on textual evidence activities for your 9th and 10th graders! I have so much to share, and I can’t wait to get it all out there for you. Just follow my page to learn when my newest activities are posted.
