This packet is centered around the short story, “Heartbeat,” by David Yoo and is targeted towards 8th grade students in Language Arts and focuses on analysis, summary, and vocabulary skills. After reading the short story in class and discussing the story, students can complete these stations to deepen their understanding of the story. Included in this packet is a graphic organizer worksheet to help students develop a summary of the story, vocabulary words for a word wall and LINCs table worksheet to complete, and an ACE paragraph template focused on characterization. For optimal usage, students should be taught how to complete a narrative summary, LINCs tables, and an ACE paragraph BEFORE using these stations.
