3. Reading Reflections

3. Exile's Honor
- Technique wise, what did you notice?
- Do this activity: Attach:EH9-12.doc
- While that is being done, conduct a quick Genre Survey
- Discuss results
4. Significant Workshop Time
- Back in groups of three; if possible, get back with people you read with first.
As a reminder, here are the directions from last time:
- Get into groups of two or three
- This is non-threatening, simple response. Authors get practice reading to a real audience other than the cat. The cat gets a break. Audience reacts as readers. YOU ARE NOT EDITING OR CORRECTING at this point. You're reading rough drafty stuff.
- No apologies or explanation! Your work stands on its own--or it doesn't.
- Read what you've written (may need to limit it to one page, depending on time)
Audience respond in the following manner:
- Praise--One VERY SPECIFIC thing you liked.
- Question--What would you like to hear more of or to learn more about?
- Wish--If the author were to continue this, I wish she would . . .
Remember, feedback is feedback. The purpose of this is to see how your reader reacts. You don't have to take all suggestions, but you should listen to them.
5. Next time(s):
