What are some examples of short stories?
Mabanglo assigns a variety of writing activities, including journals, essays, book reviews and formal responses to the work of other students.
Students collaborate with Mabanglo and other students in the class as they conceive and prepare their individual essay drafts.
Three of these methods are described below. See Teaching with Journals for more information about using journals and examples of their use in other classes at UH Manoa.
Though she often requires students to continue writing outside of class, Mabanglo asks students to begin most of their journal entries during class. Mabanglo provides a variety of prompts for writing, depending on the assigned texts and the preceding discussions.
Students are sometimes asked to express reactions and feelings, sometimes to develop ideas and analysis, and sometimes to compose one or a series of questions. Mabanglo usually requires each student to prepare an individual response.
However, because of her emphasis on creating a powerful learning classroom community, Mabanglo sometimes places students in pairs or groups and asks them to compose a joint journal entry reflecting their collaboration Once journal responses are written, Mabanglo may: Ask volunteers to read their responses aloud to the class Ask volunteers to explain or reflect on their response Put students into pairs to read and discuss their separate responses Ask students to turn in their journals for instructor review Ask students to exchange journals and to write responses to each other; these may then be shared in any of the ways mentioned above.
Each of these strategies encourages students to view their learning as a part of a dialog with other students, the instructor and the authors being read. Insights developed in journal responses often become the impetus for other written assignments students must complete.
Formal Peer Responses Students write three essays about literature during the semester, each a minimum of seven pages in length. Mabanglo provides a choice of topics for each of these see below and students are encouraged to develop the insights they have in their journals.
Students bring completed essays to class. Mabanglo then gives each essay to another student who must study it and compose a formal critical response of at least two type-written pages. She encourages respondents to make use of what they have learned from writing their own journals and essays and to engage the student essay with the same seriousness that they would a published work.
Mabanglo assigns a grade or, in some cases, marks the essay unsatisfactory and returns it to the essayist with the stipulation that it be rewritten. Authors of the stronger essays are asked to read their work aloud to the class.
Using student respondents provides authors with a wider audience than they would have if Mabanglo served as the only reader.
Group Book Reviews Groups of two to three students read a Filipino novel of their choice or from a list see below provided by Mabanglo.
Each group must collaborate to produce both a written book review and an oral presentation. The oral presentation is designed to convince the rest of the class why they should or should not read the novel.
These group book reviews serve as the culminating activity in the class and, once again, underscore the importance of a learning community.An Anthology of Philippine Fiction in English The modern form of the short story is magnificently showcased in this anthology of fifty selections in English written by Filipinos in the last century.4/5.
