PREPARATION

Read a short story. (Students will write in response to a short story they have chosen from either an anthology or the class library. If the teacher chooses a story for the entire class, take the previous day's class period to either read it aloud or with partners. Otherwise, use that time for independent reading or assign the story for homework.)
