Product Description
From Electric English...
This is a fresh, clean copy of "A Worn Path" by Eudora Welty. I have widened the margins here and minimized the number of pages you would have to copy. Coupled with double sided printing, you can use these and not feel too guilty about the trees :) As an English teacher, sometimes I cringe at all the paper, but alas, at least there are great words being written on them....

These stories are the ones I have chosen to accompany the Short Story: Analysis Project. Lots of choices I know, but choice is always a good thing. Use as few or as many as you would like. The students choose three stories from lists that you have provided. Over the course of a several week period, they will be asked to look at diction, style/syntax, and tone.... This is a great project because the students get to read and are exposed to even more literature. Let's face it, there is such a huge body of work to choose from when considering any artistic medium or genre. That no matter what grade you teach, or even what subject, we as teachers can never expose our students to as much work as we would like. This project helps do that at least a little though... It gets them reading, exposes them to different ideas, and yes, this counts too, is a way to assess their reading strategies and skills with a minimum of grading on your part :) Give it a try! If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me. Oh yeah, and all the stories for the project are posted in my store for free :)
