Teaching Literature Grade 9: Integrating the Communication Arts. The Short Story. Experimental.
Bonnici, Charles; And Others
Designed to demonstrate a variety of ways in which listening, speaking, reading, and writing activities can be built around the study of short stories, the works dealt with in this collection of materials, lessons, and activities include some of the most frequently taught short stories in New York City ninth-grade classrooms. The document begins with a general introduction to the short story, followed by suggestions for teaching it in the ninth grade. Next is a description of the short story resource unit that lists student performance objectives, preparatory activities, motivation tactics, themes, and literature concepts that are important for the short stories covered in the unit. The remainder of the booklet consists of 16 lesson plans for short stories and their components (such as setting, characterization, and plot), followed by an evaluation of the unit. Two appendixes deal with integrating the study of vocabulary with the teaching of the short story and short story anthologies. (SKC)
