This activity is a reading / writing activity to go along with the short story, "Scarlet Ibis" by James Hurst. However, it could be used with any story really if you change the name and page numbers.
*Students must locate and cite five passages / quotes from the story and then list their "response" to each one. I also have students create a five term vocabulary log to define five terms that they were unsure of while reading.
This is a great way for students to "actively" read and respond to a given story.
