English teachers, Have you just read an outstanding novel to your class? What kind of final test do you assign? I suggest students should "DO" something with what they've learned...something they use to bless others!
Suggestion #1 (This product)
Write their own story! This "story snapshot" worksheet will help your students move from brainstorm, to rough draft stage. I use this with high-school students. Great stories, as this emphasizes dramatic elements, for great stories!
