Product Description
19 pages of materials: unit overview, outline, student checklist, peer editing, sample paper, easy-to-use grading rubric.

One of my favorite book series--when I was growing up--was the Choose Your Own Adventure series. These novels are unique in that they're written in the second-person, and allow readers to interact with the story: "If you go downstairs, Go To Page 6; If you go upstairs, Go To Page 8."

I use that concept to incorporate technology and writing skills. Students use Inspiration's flowcharts to map out plot options the reader may choose from.

Next, students write the story in MS Word. Rather than using many sheets of paper with "Go to Page...", students break their story into "Sections"--using that as a heading for each new choice.

Sections are highlighted and using MS Word's bookmark feature (Insert/Bookmark)--turned into bookmarks. Options under each section are highlighted and changed into hyperlinks to those bookmarks (Insert/Hyperlink).

These stories are very interactive, fun, and can be shared in class, posted on the web, or-as we do-saved in MS Reader format on handheld computers to share with classmates, friends, and family.

Even the most reluctant writers enjoy this project.
