Students have been working in teams to create stories! First, each student invented an original character using the “Character Creator”. Then pairs of students shared their characters and outlined a story idea that would involve BOTH of their characters. Finally students started draft writing their stories. The trick was, each student in the team had to write the same story, BUT from the point of view of their own character!
The homework tonight then is for students to work for a half an hour on the draft of their version of that story. If they need to consult with their co-authors, students were encouraged to phone them. (For example, if both characters are in the same room, the co-authors may need to call to decide on the color of the room!)
The draft stories are due Friday.
