  • 2. “The Lady, or the Tiger?”
    By Frank R. Stockton
    The story you are about to read takes place long ago in the time of the Roman Empire.
    A strange king uses a public arena to reward the innocent and punish the guilty.
    Life or death depends on one decision…
  • 3. Anticipation Guide: 1 Paragraph. What’s going on in this picture?
  • 4. Anticipation Guide
    AGREE or DISAGREE?
    The Death Penalty is a fair way to convict criminals.
    It is better to follow the ways of the past than to evolve with new ideas.
    Jealousy is the most dangerous kind of motivation.
    If we are in positions of power, we should use our power to get what we want, no matter what.
    Written Response = 1 Paragraph
    Think about a time when you, or someone you know, faced an important decision. What helped you make the decision? Describe the best way to make an important decision.
  • 5. Our Focus…
    Characterization
    How an author develops the character (looks, attitude, speech, etc.)
    Character Motivation
    How a character’s personality effects the way they behave and act.
    Irony
    When what actually happens in the story is the exact opposite of what the reader expects.
    Surprise Ending
    Plot twist at the end of the story.
    Setting
    The time and place in which the story takes place.
  • 6. We are now in Ancient Rome…
  • 7. Ancient Rome
    The Roman Empire rose to power and controlled the lands bordering the Mediterranean Sea by A.D. 100.
    The system of justice in Stockton’s “semi-barbaric” land brings to mind a very real and very cruel practice of the Roman Empire, the games in the collosseum.
    Here, gladiators fought to the bloody death, slaves and captives were pitted against each other, and criminals were killed by wild animals.
  • 8. Which came out of the door…
    The Lady,
    or,
    The Tiger?
  • 9. YOUR HOMEWORK
    In order to practice our characterization skills, you will first characterize YOURSELF tonight for homework. Copy this diagram onto a clean sheet of paper.
