    1.) when sharon and her friends are robbing the bank why do they break their rules and kill people?
    Essential Questions that are addressed during the Short Story Unit: • How do authors use the resources of language to impact an audience? • What role does chaos play in the creative process? • What makes a "good" story? • Can literature serve as a vehicle for social change? • How are belief-systems represented and reproduced through literature? • How does the study of literature help individuals construct an understanding of reality? • Why is it important for people and cultures to construct narratives about their experience? • Are there universal themes in literature that are of interest or concern to all cultures and societies? Objectives for the Short Story Unit: By the end of this unit, students will: • Understand and identify traditional short story structure and elements. • Define and use appropriate literary terms related to short story. • Understand and analyze the various recurring themes of short stories. • Refine grammar, usage, and composition skills in a variety of formats. • Participate in class discussions about the literary/social effect of selected authors' works. • Develop strategies for reading and responding personally and analytically to short stories • Compare, contrast, analyze, and evaluate connections between text, ideas, and experience. • Use text details to analyze character, plot, setting, point of view and development of theme. • Write a multi-paragraph essay with an effective thesis statement and elaboration through specific and relevant details. -- The Morgan School Clinton, CT
