Product Description
This worksheet uses story grammar elements to analyze students' problem-solving thought process. They first have to identify the conflict, other "characters" in their story, and information about the setting that is important for a "reader" to know (time, place, hidden rules, history).

They then report their feelings about the conflict, important stuff they know that helped them solve the problem AND WHERE THEY LEARNED IT, and then their plan for solving the problem. Then they identify how their plan worked, the resolution, and the lesson learned.
If the "story" has already happened, they might not need to do both the plan and the events.

Overall, I have found it very helpful in analyzing students' thought processes and giving a structure for giving pointers. Specifically, identifying how hidden rules and history affects how to go about solving a problem, identifying if they used an appropriate information source, and letting them draw their own conclusion about what they learned.

This worksheet can also be used to help students compose narratives.
