Reading Techniques: Previewing

How to preview a story:

Look through the story for a set amount of time, longer for novels and long short stories, and shorter for short stories. Try to pick out the important details of the story: main characters, basic plot, etc.

Short Stories

Today we began our four week unit on “short stories.” We will be spending this week on reading short stories, next week on listening to them, a week on writing short stories, and a week on storytelling.

We read today one short story (either “The Three Little Pigs” or “The King and His Hawk” depending on which class you are) and will be reading more tomorrow.

Check out the presentation below for some basics on short stories.
