Common Core activity created by The House of Roush to teach Literary Devices to intermediate level / junior high / middle school students.

Follow up questions included asking students to reflect on author's background in creating the short story. Exit Quiz assessment allows teachers to quickly assess whether students have learned the basic content and can be used for grouping before moving on to more difficult and in-depth subject matter.
