The Story of an Hour Constructed Response, Close Reading, & Inference Statements
This 3-part lesson engages students and meets Common Core standards with the close reading of the classic tale “The Story of an Hour.” While reading the story, students will complete a graphic organizer as they identify Explicit Information and Implied Meanings. After reading, they will create Inference Statements, give and receive feedback on those statements, and write a Constructed Response.
This lesson is complete and requires NO PREP on your part! Print everything out and you're ready to go! (If you do not have the story in a textbook, the link is included for a public domain version that prints cleanly on two sheets of paper!)
