Short Stories for Teaching Imagery
Imagine a world where students not only never ever said, "imagery is when a writer paints a picture in the reader's mind," but a world in which they understood what imagery was and why it's important in determining the theme of a short story.
Use these short stories to teach imagery and a bunch of other literary elements.
- "A Sound of Thunder" by Ray Bradbury
- "The Scarlet Ibis" by James Hurst
- "A White Heron" by Sarah Orne Jewett
- "The Pit and the Pendulum" by Edgar Allan Poe
- Bonus: The Poems of Emily Dickinson
Each unit contains lesson plans, graphic organizer handouts with answer keys, essay rubrics, a summary and analysis of the story, discussion ideas, a quiz, and oh so much more.
