Feedback on Stories in Progress

January 30, 2007

Thank you all for sharing your stories. I really enjoyed reading the brief excerpts that most of you posted. I look forward to reading the complete revised versions this weekend. If you haven’t posted an excerpt of your story to your personal blog, please do that as soon as possible.

If I was going to suggest ways that students might begin their stories in the future, I might show them posts by Alyssa, Jeremy, Matt, and Joe. While these posts are doing a little bit of telling, they are doing more showing than telling.

What do I mean when I say show vs. tell? See this site for examples.

I hope you’re enjoying this change of pace from the SAR writing that you’ve been doing. Please let me know if you have any questions.
