Reading in Prep for Writing
If you are reading a short story as assigned, here are reminders about the steps.
1. Find the story by following the link. Read it there, print it from there, or capture it and paste into a Word doc to read and/or print. At this stage, it doesn't matter if you print it out or read it on the computer.
2. Note around 5 vocab words you find, and look them up so you can see which definition makes most sense in that context. You can write or type this.
3. Be prepared to discuss the story, ask questions about it, and write on it.
Note: If at any time you find the link doesn't work, Google the title and see if you can find it at another location. Let me know if you have any troubles beyond that.
