Are you looking for ways to revamp your short story unit so that students will see new meaning to some old favorites? In the Better Lesson: Reading Short Stories for Plot, Character & Author's Purpose Unit, students will improve their reading comprehension skills. Students will practice fluency skills, and they will deconstruct a story to understand the character's motivation, the plot, and the reason why an author chooses to use a certain point of view or setting. This unit uses the following short stories to explore these themes: “Flowers of Algernon,” “Tell Tale Heart,” “The Lottery,” “The Landlady,” “The Treasures of Lemon Brown,” “Raymond’s Run,” “A Rose for Emily,” “The Pit and the Pendulum,” and “Cora Unashamed.”
