  • StandardsNEW

This editable 17-question close reading exercise promotes active reading strategies, facilitating high-order analysis of "The Tomb" by H.P. Lovecraft, a short story in the fantasy and horror genres. Furthermore, this resource is designed to prepare students for ACT reading test question types (vocabulary-in-context questions, author's voice and method questions, main idea questions, and detail questions).

With an estimated Lexile Measure of 1200-1300, this text and its corresponding assessment are appropriate additions to any high school short story unit, especially at the 11th and 12th grade levels.

By completing this activity, secondary students will demonstrate the following:

  • An ability to discern mood and tone in context
  • An ability to analyze context clues and draw logical inferences about characterization/character motivations
  • An ability to find and articulate relevant details in the text
  • An ability to define complex vocabulary in context
  • An ability to understand character motivations
  • An ability to apply knowledge of literary devices to the text with an emphasis on how the author employs situational irony

The resource and its detailed answer key are delivered in Word Document, Google Document, and PDF formats. H.P. Lovecraft's narrative is also included since it is in the public domain.

This resource aligns well to Academic Literacy Project teaching principles. These worksheets serve well as the basis for small-group discussions. Through these discussions, students decode language and pose/respond to questions relating to plot, broad topics, and character development, demonstrating an ability to analyze how complex characters transform and advance the plot and themes by applying logic and citing compelling, meaningful textual evidence. They will also evaluate their peers' reasoning and use of rhetoric to advance claims, clarifying or challenging unclear ideas. Using this resource for structured guidance, students, ultimately, will present information, conclusions, and supporting textual evidence clearly, concisely, and appropriately, thereby helping their peers -- and teacher -- comprehend their thinking.
