Description

Use the heartbreaking story “The Scarlet Ibis” by James Hurst to teach your students the elements of literary analysis. This three-day lesson plan includes a 7-question deep-thinking exercise (with detailed answer key/class discussion starters), a pre-writing organizing task that will get your students to dig back into the text and organize symbolic elements (also with answer key), and a literary analysis writing assignment where students will examine Hurst’s use of symbolism to support his theme. A checkmark-based writing rubric is also included.

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

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