Short Story Analysis Plus

intro to reading and analysis

Learning to read fiction texts carefully is an important skill as students read more complex texts across all subjects. In this short holiday version of our Fiction Analysis Plus workshop, students will read and discuss a short story, learning to identify a writer’s purpose and tone and analysing the techniques and strategies that a writer employs to achieve his or her purpose. Students will be asked to consider these techniques as both readers and writers: they will explain their short story analysis in structured essays and try their hand at applying some of these techniques and strategies to a writing piece of their own.
