Students stuck for ideas for a short story? Do they have a difficult time coming up with characters, setting, or a conflict? This set of worksheets deals with writer's block in a fun and unique way. Using a collaborative technique, students will get a great start on a short story! This is one of my students' favorite activities during the year.
Includes a detailed lesson plan, unique "Dial-A-Short-Story" Template, and an example of how to use it, student brainstorming worksheets, short story planner, an editing checklist, and grading rubrics.
An excellent way to review the elements of the short story - antagonist, protagonist, setting, conflict, climax, etc.
