I first used this lesson in an eighth grade math connections class as a way for students to think of a line graph as a way to tell a story of action over time. The line graph really lends itself to be a graphic organizer, and at the same time it helps students to pinpoint the key ideas in part of a story. This activity as presented has a practice story writing incorporating a line graph that is provided. The graph shows two lines, so the story is about two baseball players, one the pitcher, the other the batter. The students can easily see how perspective is all in the eye of the individual. After practicing with this story either as individuals, partner, group, the student gets to create his own line graph and story. A rubric is provided to enable both teacher and student to understand the goals.
