Literary Fanzine Part 3
The third unit we did in my class was a short story unit. We read many different short stories, and the assignment was:
Either write a short story in the style of one of the stories we read, or draw an illustration for one of the stories, or write a short letter telling next year’s class why they should read one of the stories.
Most of the responses I received were letters to next year’s class, but I did get two beautiful illustrations as well!
Somewhere in the confusion of the holidays, I didn’t scan the letters, or I have misplaced the scans. However, I would highly recommend this activity. The students really enjoyed it, and again, students who didn’t talk in class had a way to express their opinions that was less intimidating.
