I am an Author!

The Short Story Project

At the end of the short story unit, you will be expected to write a short story with a partner OR independently which demonstrates your understanding of the major elements of the short story. These include:

Although you will be given some class time to create your short stories, you will be expected to use time outside of class. Therefore, choose a partner whose schedule will make meetings easier.

At the end of the unit, your stories will be collected and photocopied into a portfolio that will be distributed to all the students in the class. We will have a reading during which students will read their stories aloud tot he class.

Because this story represents a lot of time and work and will be shared with the class, you should begin brainstorming ideas NOW!
