Rationale: No doubt us educators want our students to be able to enjoy reading the stories we give them. Yet, the inevitable reality is that in some form or another students are going to be asked to recall what they have read. They are often very opinionated about the selections we give to them or how we ask them to recall parts of the story. Being that this is so, the two handouts in this packet are ideal for the students to complete. They are not so overburdening that the students are turned off to the story, yet, the educator can assign points to each section, gauge whether or not the students have in fact read the story, as well as give them an opportunity to state whether the story they read was good or bad. This last part helps the students gain a sense of self and builds their voice towards literature in a manner that is still academic. Lastly, these handouts are great to refer back to when completing any response to literature writing prompt or informative essay. These sheets are meant to ascertain whether students attained the necessary knowledge in Quad A so that they can use the information to move onto more Quad D products of application such as story reviews for a classroom or school newspaper. These handouts can be applied to ANY short story.
