I created this short story form when I was teaching 6th grade summer school.
I used it for students who were reading short stories as a morning warm up.
It asks students to:
Describe using senses, character traits, book cover
While I used this with rising 5th/6th graders, it could also be used for students who are not quite on grade level and unable to do in depth analyzing in 7th and 8th grade.
