Frame Story "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County"

Mark Twain's frame story, "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County" provides an opportunity for a study of this story-within-a-story pattern. Using an illustrated template, class members record a plot summary of the frame story on the outside edge of the frog while recording a plot summary of the primary story within the frog’s belly. After coloring the frogs, the completed templates are shared and displayed. A link to the template is not provided.
