Short Story Element Lesson:  Style
1.      Spend the entire time before lunch on this analysis; if needed, work on it after lunch as well.
2.     Open the doc in our class folder entitled “Style Analysis.” 
3.     Go to “file,” then “make a copy.”
4.     Make a copy of this doc, but don’t share it with anyone, not even the writer or me—top secret!
5.     Read over the analysis points, and look up words you don’t know to understand your job better.  And your job today is to analyze your partner’s writing style, using as much detail as you are capable of.
6.     The third column on the sheet is for your observations and conclusions about the writer’s style.
7.     Read the first six pages of your partner’s story, and complete the analysis on your google doc. 
8.     You should feel and sound like a detective scientist here.  J
9.     If time allows, read the remainder of their story.
10.   Again, don’t show this to anyone when you finish!  And don’t discuss your findings with anyone!  …top secret!  J

Workshop (After Lunch)
1.      Finish your story—yes, it’s true!
2.     When you come in tomorrow, your story should be ready to print and share.
