Exploring English

October 11, 2018

The new year has begun with short stories and puns.  The Sophomore English class has been learning about the elements of the short story through the study of Ray Bradbury's The Illustrated Man.  Seven out of 18 stories were study.  The remaining 11 stories were divided between collaborative groups.  The groups were given the assignment to  present these stories in a teaching project for presentation utilizing different types of media presentation such as Prezi, Newspaper  front page, comic strip, etc.  

As the end of the short story approached, the Sophomore class was taken to see Encore at Century II in Wichita, Kansas where they viewed six short stories presented in play form.  This play included stories from Edgar Allen Poe, Mark Twain, and various others.  As an end learning project, the students will be writing their own short story.
