A "Beat the Author" PPT that follows a reading of Ray Bradbury's "All Summer in a Day." You would read the story in class, but end while the children are still playing outside in the sun. After, students will feel confused and upset, since the story is clearly not over. Then, introduce beat the author and have students write in their own ending in groups. Make sure to compile all the endings together along with Bradbury's ending so that students can vote for the ending they think belongs to Bradbury.
