This book contains 7 short stories and 5 poems, all of which are annotated with important information to help students understand the texts.
Multiple short-answer questions for each story and poem require students to analyze literary elements like figurative language, structure, and tone and help them explain the effects of these elements on the meaning of the work as a whole.
