|Step 1||Examine your annotated reading of all four short stories ("On the Rainy River," "Two Words," "Touching Bottom," and "The Shining Houses"). What elements (plot, character, setting, conflict, tone, mood, theme, symbolism, word choice) have
been color-coded/highlighted the most often in each text? See the exemplar.
Complete the first table provided in the Document Links below. (Be sure to see the exemplar. For help on short story elements, see your English Language Arts Handbook, pp. 208-212.)
|Step 2||Choose two of the short stories to continue analyzing.
Complete the second table where you will indicate the top 3 elements for these two stories. Beside each element, provide at minimum, 3 supporting quotations from the text. (For help, see the Exemplar.)
