Pick a short story to read as a class. Make sure students have a copy to read along. Before you begin reading, have students complete the "Before Reading" tips on this page. Then have a volunteer read part of the story aloud. Pause the reader at a natural stopping point, and have students answer the WIN questions:
- What is happening to the characters?
- Is this what I thought might happen?
- Now what will happen?
Repeat this exercise, if necessary, after reading the next part of the story. When you complete the story, discuss what happened to the main character and ask for volunteers to share what they thought of the ending.
