Friday fiction for Friday fun! If your class sometimes suffers from Friday fatigue, this could be your answer. DogTales Collaborative Stories contains 19 story starters --- enough content for every Friday of the semester.
Collaborative stories encourage creativity as well as teamwork. Each template contains 2-3 visual story starters. Students combine those story elements and add details to create their own story.
Logistics? You can post the Google Docs as assignments to your Google Classroom. If you want, create your own template of instructions as to word count, number of sentences, etc. and send that with the assignment.
Use the Powerpoint slides for classroom discussion or individual activities. Each slide has lines ready to become a printable assignment if you'd rather have students collaborate without the online component.
Use the Word docs if you have a Microsoft Office-based classroom.
The 3 formats give you the flexibility you need without adding complexity.
This activity will also provide an artifact for Element 3C of the Danielson framework by utilizing instructional groups and allowing students to create their own materials to enhance their learning.
