This download contains four pages of thought provoking questions and discussion topics concerning The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman. The first section of the assignment contains ten reading response questions. These questions are NOT reading comprehension questions! They ask to students to assess the conflict, tone, characterization, and themes from within the story. The second part of the assignment has seven PERSONAL response questions. These are questions that allow the students to voice their own opinions on what they read.
I have used this assignment as a group assignment and an individual assignment. It is a thorough way to assess your students understanding of the story. The questions cannot be answered by reading Sparknotes or Cliffsnotes! The material also created some great class discussions!
I allowed by students two days to complete the questions and one day to discuss their answers as a class. I used this assignment in an AP level English course and was very successful.
