Product Description
This 45 minute activity focuses on Ernest Hemingway and his famous 6-Word Short Story Challenge.

The Presentation includes the following:
-A Biographical Video of Ernest Hemingway
-A Link to the Hemingway-Pfieffer Museum and Education Center website
-A Link to an Interactive Historical Timeline of Hemingway and his second wife, Pauline.
-Background context for Hemingway's creation of the 6 word short-story,
-A copy of Hemingway's 6 word short-story.
-A link to an NPR article that published other famous authors' 6 word short-stories.
-A writing and presentation challenge for students.
-A technology-based extension assignment.

*You could assign this activity as an individual research activity for students in a 1:1 classroom. I would suggest posting an assignment to your Google Classroom page for students to submit their short stories. Then I would suggest creating a class "hashtag" so students can tag their post on Instagram. I offer this as bonus points. (If you need help learning how to post on Google Classroom, see the Step-by-Step Guide to posting on Google Classroom from my store!

*For a classroom that isn't 1:1, I would suggest projecting this and navigating the slides as a classroom! Students could post to Instagram using their cell phones!
