English 10 Short Story: The Trout
The Elements of the Story

February 6, 2002

Group Activity:

With your group discuss and answer the following questions.

1. Julia is a "round character" (we know many things about her). Describe her character (her personality). Use three of her actions as support for your ideas-one from the beginning, one from the middle, and one from the end of the story.

2. Julia is a "dynamic character" (a character who learns something). What does she learn? How does she learn it?

3. In this story, the setting (where the story happens, the characteristics of the place itself) is important. The setting of The Dark Walk affects Julia in at least two different ways. Describe the two effects.

4. Julia has a strong opinion about her parents' stories. Explain what this conflict (difference of opinion) shows about her. Also, how are her father and mother's stories different? What do their stories show about them?

Homework (Draft is due on February 13):

Write a very short story about a child who learns something important. Follow O'Failain's example, using an important setting, a brother (or sister), and two parents.

Make sure that you show the child's way of looking at the world. We should know very little about the parents' thinking.

Include some dialogue in your story.

Write no more than 500 to 700 words or so.

Read a story written for this assignment.
