Read the classic story of “Rip Van Winkle” written by Washington Irving who is considered America’s first master of the short story. Analyze the elements of a short story and what differentiates them from the novel. Practice identifying and correcting run-on sentences and sentence fragments. For the final project develop your own short story.
