Worksheet: Elements of A Short Story

Four questions about conclusion, climax, tone, and theme make up this worksheet about literary elements. The questions are specific to certain short stories ("The Landlady," "The Tell Tale Heart," "There Will Come Soft Rains," and "The Monkey's Paw") but could be modified for the stories you are reading in class. Use the worksheet as a class activity, homework assignment, or quiz.
