Students love to use these materials to create their own cheat sheets
for study before tests, and design their own story settings based on personal interests.

It’s no secret that when learners link their lives to literature – they gain and retain far more.
What’s less known though, is how they make relevant links between literature and curiosity-building that cultivates meaningful takeaways beyond class.
Learners link here to enjoy and learn from literature
with key takeaways that enhance their lived experiences. Navigate through these brain-friendly (no prep) tasks in step-by-step guides to enjoy Chekhov's story as it relates to learning today.
My students use these mental jump-starts to bring alive Anton Chekhov’s classic story
, The Mistress. The materials are designed to adapt easily to lessons on "short story settings" and they relate without any alterations or edits - to your own lesson content.
Students start by recalling similar experiences to those in the story,
and end by passing a talking stick that allows them to enjoy sharing parts that relate to their unique interests and experiences.
The takeaway? Students come up with personal settings for a story they might write
. They exchange personal insights with peers using the popular talking stick method, just as Inuit leaders in the High Arctic use. Further tasks and answer keys related to a short story setting in 'Flight of the Raven," offer extra help to identify setting's role in creating a story climate.
Hopefully these ready-to-roll brain-based materials
will benefit your learners and leaders as they do mine at middle, secondary, university levels and beyond.
Do follow my TpT site
and keep up with brain-friendly materials to enhance your class.
