Product Description
“The Sniper” has it all – action, suspense, tragedy – and is sure to shake up even your most sang-froid readers: they’ll be stopped flat by its unsettling twist ending.

This 2-day lesson plan will let you develop your students’ skills at literary analysis, with a focus on the analysis of suspense. Pre- and post-reading activities will let you make meaningful connections to real-life issues about the implications of war and will enable you to creatively draw out your students’ visual-perceptive brain functions. PLUS I’ve included an ultra-visual 7-slide mini-presentation on the Irish Civil War so you can provide stimulating context for richer appreciation of the story.

Includes:

Irish Civil War Mini-Presentation to visually provide context. 

The full text of the story so students can annotate and interact with the text. 

Pre-reading writing prompt for students to start deep-thinking about the implications of war.

Creative thinking activity that draws on students’ visual-perceptive brain functions: students create a storyboard using only geometric shapes – no need to worry about students not wanting to draw. 

Plus 8 questions & activities that require students to:

• analyze suspense

• make inferences
• cite textual evidence

• determine literary theme

• produce line drawings to demonstrate close reading skills

I’ve also included a detailed key for quick-as-a-breeze grading AND teaching notes with lots of helpful suggestions.

In all:

• 2-DAY PLAN: includes story, questions & activities; teaching notes, rubric, CCSS alignment page (9 pages, 1 pdf file)

• PRESENTATION (7 pages, 1 clickable pdf file formatted for large screens)
• KEY (6 pages, 1 pdf file)

A perfect lesson plan for any grade 9 - 10 literature class!
