Product Description
Product Details:
The file includes a copy of "Paul's Case" by Willa Cather with the following embedded into the text: three stop and visualize prompts, four power write prompts, and ten stop and respond questions. Also download the free companion PowerPoint that includes background information and pictures.

Rationale:
Handing out a short story for students to read on their own leaves some students lost and confused. Reading to the class and asking probing questions leaves the other half bored and disengaged. So I developed short stories that promote metacognition by embedding questions that make the student stop and respond right within the text.

Story Overview:
"Paul's Case: A Study in Temperament" by Willa Cather was published in 1905 and is 8970 words. Despite its age the story is still relevant. It is the story of Paul a disengaged youth who favours art and the high life over the simple hard working life set out in front of him. The story deals with issues of race, class, and sexual orientation and seems to have something relatable for everyone in the classroom.
