Product Description
This activity can be used for any Character analysis work. This specific example is about creating a Vertical Name Poem for the two main characters in "The Gift of the Magi," Della and James. To set up this poem students must write either name vertically down the side of their paper. They must write a sentence or a word (depending on academic level) that starts with one of the letters of their name. This is difficult to explain, which is why I provided an example on the worksheet. The poem on the worksheet is based on the character Tessie Hutchinson from Shirley Jackson's "The Lottery."
