This is definitely a lesson I can tweak and use. I have done something similar by allowing students to preview short stories from a selection and then choose the one they want to read and respond to. This meant many students read different stories, but they did not present the story to the class. I like this idea, and look forward to trying it with my classes.

After, reading the related article in English Journal, I found this lesson plan. I tweaked it a little to focus more on analytical thinking skills, but the plan works well.
