Short Story Unit Activity

Short Story Unit Activity
Product Description
A short story is, in some ways, like a photograph- a captured moment of time that is crystalline, though sometimes mysterious, arresting, though perhaps delicate. But while a photo may or may not suggest consequences, a short story always does. In the story's moment of time something important, something irrevocable has occurred. The change may be subtle or obvious, but it is definite and definitive.

This activity is a wonderful asset if you are in preparation of a short story unit or novel. It encourages individual silent reading, and then a group activity of appropriate storytelling. Points on accurate storytelling are given to the student in the activity. Pick a class novel, individual short stories, or go to the following websites for more fun!
