Item description

Support the development of high school close reading skills with this set of analysis questions for The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros with emphasis on the thirty-second vignette titled “Sally.” The variety of question types also helps students prepare for standardized testing scenarios: main idea questions, detail questions, author’s craft questions, and more. An answer key is included. Materials are delivered in Word Document and PDF formats. Copyright restrictions do not allow for novel content to be included, so the purchaser is responsible for providing students with the text. By completing this exercise, students will:

  • Identify what the text states explicitly and implicitly
  • Analyze how complex characters develop and interact
  • Analyze a detail for symbolic value
  • Articulate what a figurative expression is intended to reveal about Sally’s character
  • Explore the author’s craft to discern and explain what role imagery plays in developing Sally’s character
  • Apply knowledge of a variety of literary devices and narrative techniques
  • Analyze the effect of directly addressing Sally on the reader
  • Discern the main function of the vignette
  • Write with clarity and precision
