Teaching the Short Story.
Rohrkemper, Alberta
Ohio English Bulletin, v12 n2 p5-9 May 1971
The techniques used to teach the short story in high school are discussed. Basic components that should be emphasized, either alone or in combination, are plot, character, and theme. By such an emphasis, the central meaning of the story is elicited. Examples of short stories that illustrate plot, character, and theme are given. Emphasis should be given to the text of the story, and the teacher should lead the students toward a more mature literary experience. (DB)
