I've seen this file referenced in several different posts, but the links are all to a 404 File not found.

 

Does anyone (who wouldn't be too put upon to find it and share) still have a copy of this file?

I'd be seriously grateful!

 

It's the one linked in the last post of this thread....(and several others, but that's the one I could find when I went back to try again.)

We are using Figuratively Speaking this year also. Wonder if this calls for the wayback machine? I'll have to switch from my phone to an actual keyboard...

...aaand the machine is down for scheduled maintenance, so we may never know. I haven't used it, so i'm not sure how likely it is that we could find the file there.

I tried the Wayback Machine when SEGway first posted because I was curious too - I've DIY'ed this approach but I wanted to see what someone had planned. But the Wayback Machine's capture didn't have the file unless there was a glitch I couldn't see. So unless someone has it, I think it's a dead end.

 

I mean, the good news is that if you want to DIY this, it's not hard. At least, I didn't find it hard. I just made a list of stories. We read. Kid does Figurative Speaking assignments. As we discuss what we read, I try to tie in things.

Does anything come up for you with that link? It looks like exactly what I found when I searched the Wayback - it just shows me some of the stuff about the original site host - Hubpages - but no actual text associated with the topic. I figured it was only partially captured.

Found it! At least the webpage I was thinking of ;). Since Wayback Machine may not play properly for everyone, I am reprinting the list of short stories and poems from the now-defunct blog below. I've taken the liberty of adding more short story ideas [in brackets], as many many of the listed examples are poems, and OP was looking for short stories.

 

As I have time, I will try to come back and connect up links to where you can read online. Cheers! And happy reading. :)

Yes, I see a chapter by chapter schedule with readings and assignments, some with links (which work for me). Curious...

 

So, this archived webpage must be different from the one I had remembered and found, as mine didn't have schedules and assignments. Is the list of literature to go with each unit of Figuratively Speaking different as well (from what I typed out above)?

 

Would you be able to copy-paste into this thread? I'd love to see the ideas to possibly use with my middle school Lit. & Comp. classes this year, and Chrome won't let me access your link. :) Thanks in advance if you can do that, and if not, totally understand. :)

Learn literary terms and read classic literature with this course outline using Figuratively Speaking

 

By hteacher

 
Figuratively Speaking Course Outline

I put together this literature course for my son using Figuratively Speaking as our guide. It is designed to take 2+ school years to complete with an approximate frequency of 45 minutes 3-4 times per week. I used literature references in Figuratively Speaking and other sources to choose which works of literature my son would read. I have also included a few great classics that do not relate to the literary terms just studied. Several of the books are read aloud by the parent as well. The books read aloud are typically ones where we have more discussion. The classic books chosen vary in the reading levels, but if your child is comfortably at the seventh grade reading level the reading books shouldn't be too difficult. Some of the read aloud books are above the seventh grade level. Much of the poetry or short stories listed below can be found online.

Lori, it's not that different. It just has some links to some outside resources/worksheets. 

 

I knew it wouldn't keep the pretty formatting. LOL Now I will go back and see if the links work in this copy. They did work in my window. 

 

Also, when I had problems running a very important web page (the online moving web site for the Army, LOL!), I was told I could download another web browser. It did work. So maybe downloading another one would be good as a backup? I still use my other occasionally when things don't load.

It was no problem. Now I will try to start fixing the links one by one. The first one I clicked on failed.

Ug! That's a pain! That's what I've been doing, too, slowly relinking (or sometimes looking for new links!) for the ones on the archived webpage I had found.

 

Good luck partner! ;)

You can upload it to Google docs and make it public (just that one doc; we won't see the rest of your docs.)

Lori, if you are on a Windows computer, you will have the Microsoft Edge browser. I was able to view the archived page that Alta Veste linked in Edge.

Or if you are using a Mac, you will have the Safari browser.

Google and I have a very complicated relationship due to some tricksy stuff with setting up the kids with their own email addresses years ago. I still get pretty irate when I think about it. Suffice it to say that my password is locked away safer than all the gold at Fort Knox.
