This fun creative writing assignment is a great alternative to assigning a standard essay. Students will demonstrate their ideas about a character from a text that you have studied in class by writing an original story about that character. It is also a great tool for discussing point of view, biases, and themes in a text.
Included in this packet are questions on “The True Story of the Three Little Pigs” by Jon Scieszka with an answer key to those questions, a prewriting handout to get students thinking about bias and point of view, and prompt for the assignment, and a rubric to grade the final products.
The text of “The True Story of the Three Little Pigs” has not been included because of copyright reasons.
