This week we focused on two short stories: Persephone and Charles. These stories allowed us to focus on basic elements of a short story (plot, character, setting, theme, point of view, irony, and conflict). For next week please make sure that you have read both of these stories as we will be moving on to new stories.   An understanding of the above mentioned terms will be essential for next week's lessons. If you do not feel comforatable with them please take the time to research their definitions as well as examples over the weekend.
