Writing Lesson Review

Sharing:  Cliché Trio Stories Aloud

  1. We are going to read these stories aloud; split the story in half to share the reading, or alternate reading, using your dialogue for help.
  2. Here is your paper copy, which you will put in your manila folder  after you read it aloud!
  3. I’ll have your story up on the screen.
  4. Commenting:  for each story, audience members make three comments on the handout.  Let’s talk about those now.
  5. I need someone to scroll down the stories as they’re being read—who can do that for me?
  6. After you read your story, we’re going to EDIT them together on the big screen—this is for EVERYONE, so EVERYONE needs to stay engaged and to help us.
