This organizer provides students with guidance for documenting an analysis of the writer's craft in two well-known romance genre short stories. Focus areas include the elements of plot structure, point of view, and speaker/voice. Students are also asked to address a constructed response question related to dialogue as a tool for revealing character and progressing plot.
Note: Teacher will need to provide access to the short stories through print or digital access. Stories referenced are "Checkouts" by Cynthia Rylant and "Long Walk to Forever" by Kurt Vonnegut.
