Need your students to write a short story? Looking for something that will get them excited about it? Creating a graphic short story is often the trick! This assignment will have students plan and individually write their own short story on a topic of your or the class' choosing. They use short story language and are able to put those terms to use. When they are done that portion of the assignment they pair up with someone else and create a graphic short story for one of their pieces. Great things will happen! They always end up reworking the piece, talking about the aspects of the piece and deciding what needs to be focused on. Have them present at the end which creates some great conversation! Great for students that need to get engaged!
