Anecdotes

An anecdote is a type of short story where you tell of a personal experience.  Today we practiced presenting an anecdote to the class in preparation for telling your stories later this week.  I told the story of the day that I met my wife.  A few of your classmates also got up and tried to do a story.

Homework

Read over the Basic Techniques for Story Telling handout gave out yesterday and practice telling your story four times in front of a mirror and once in front of someone.  Remember to follow the scoring guide to know what is expected and what you should concentrate on.  If you struggle heavily with English, then practice more than those five times.
