Product Description
This file includes a comprehension quiz, vocabulary study, and writing prompts for the short story "The Overcoat" by Nikolai Gogol. (The excerpt is sometimes titled, "The Cloak").

The story is about a man who save money to buy an overcoat, has it stolen, and subsequently dies. Included:

* A reading quiz. The quiz has 10 short answer questions focusing on comprehension. Use it alone as an after-reading quiz or include it in a larger test. Answer key included.
* 30 vocabulary words, defined. These words are pulled from the story. Use them to start a writing assignment, or as a vocabulary study. I have included definitions and different teaching ideas for this long list of words.
* Writing prompts. Three writing prompts that address different concepts in the story, such as characterization and theme. An answer key is not included for this portion.
