At the beginning of the year, I often want to jump into short stories and get down to the nitty gritty of digging into them. Sometimes, the summer has not been kind to our students' memories. This short review handout and writing assignment help to combat that!
Included are the the following:
1. A handout that reviews the basic elements of narrative, including the plot diagram
2. A short writing assignment that has students creating a basic plot, conflict, character, and setting. They then will write an 8 sentence minimum exposition.
3. A document with 18 story starters to offer students a jump off point for their story creation
This is a zip file that includes both PDF versions of the handouts to contain the original design and font choices as well as a word document version to allow you to easily alter the work.
