In conjunction with reading “The Story of an Hour” by Kate Chopin, students will write a short story from one of two alternative points of view. They may pick either writing the point of view of Brently Mallard or of Josephine, the sister. Students will have to decide what details from the text their narrator will know. They will also work to model the style and mood of the original text.
Considerations: Did Mrs. Mallard talk with her sister about how she really felt? Did Brently suspect or see that his bride was unhappy with something?
