English 10 Short Story: "The Trout"
Guided Revision of a Short Short Story

February 13, 2002

Today, we will revise the stories we wrote for homework. For each step, the teacher will guide you. Listen carefully to each instruction, write as requested, and be prepared to share your results with the class. If you have not done the homework, write sentences according to the instructions below.

Guided Revision

1. Read your first five sentences. Do you give the setting? If yes, add one or two new sentences describing the setting. If no, add four sentences of setting to your story.

2. Read the sentences where the main character is introduced. Are the sentences clear? Make one simple sentence into a compound or complex (if you have strong sentences already, add a simple sentence instead). If you have forgotten to introduce the main character, introduce him or her now.

3. Read the sentences about the other characters in your story. For each character, add one sentence of dialogue OR revise your dialogue to make it clearer.

4. Check your paragraphing. Have you started a new paragraph when a character speaks for the first time? Find and mark all the paragraphs. Is it clear, always, who is speaking?

5. Find places where we have information on the child's point of view. Have you shown a child's point of view clearly? If not, write one sentence that shows the thinking of the child in your story. If yes, improve or revise one (or more) sentences written to show this point of view.

Homework: Finish all revisions done in class. Hand in a clean copy before next week's class.
