I use these notes and examples to prep students for my short story unit. I have had students just copy the notes on a piece of paper, but depending on how much time I have, I have had them just fill in the definitions on the vocab template, or with even less time, I've had them just fill in the blanks.
You could also use them as scaffolded notes providing differentiation. You could allow advanced students to write the entire definitions, intermediate students could write the definitions in the vocab template, and special ed or struggling students could simply fill in the blank.
