Questions for Responding to Fiction/story in English 2328
THESE ARE DIFFERENT STORIES. PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY
Use these questions below to guide you as you complete your reading responses
for short stories (fiction). I suggest that you choose only a few questions to
answer in your response–but make the response a paragraph–don’t number
your responses. You will probably notice that some of the questions are similar
and that some of the responses may overlap–that’s fine. Your response should
reflect your own thoughts and analysis of the story. Your response to each
story should be at least 200 words (but will probably be longer) and should
show that you have read the story carefully. You should mention the names of
characters, details from the story that support your response, incidents in the
story that affect your reading of it, etc. You must use quotations from the
stories in your responses.
PLEASE DO NOT SUMMARIZE!!!
