Suggestions for Writing Assignments

1. After the students have read the story (or have had it read to them) have them write in, in their own words and in as much detail as they can.

2. This story suggests something about how we judge people -- and about why we are often wrong. In a short paper, write a story of your own that suggests the same thing.

Suggestion for Revision

After the students have written their responses to one of the above, have them revise it to add details by adding adjectives, adverbs, phrases, and/or additional sentences within the text.
