This lesson, focusing on two sets of stories "renamed" by Raymond Carver, allows students to develop an appreciation of the importance of titles. Students use discussions of Carver's texts to refine their skills as analytical writers and are encouraged to transfer their understanding of the significance of titles to future writing.
