The Gift of the Magi

Test the true meaning of giving - and irony - with this lesson about "The Gift of the Magi." Using textual analysis, details, and text organization, middle schoolers make predictions about future events in the story and determine the author's purpose in writing the story. They analyze the literary elements within the text to draw conclusions and create meaning, and use textual evidence to determine the author's purpose.

I just transferred mid-year to an art teacher position; it has been more than 15 years since I taught art. I needed some quick ideas to get started. Thank you Lesson Planet!
