This creative writing activity challenges students to create the story behind common classifieds. Students either select a classified from the ones that are included or from pre-selected classifieds you have chosen. They must plan and/or write the short story behind the classified. They can create and develop the characters, setting, and situation.
This activity also includes an optional brainstorming/pre-writing worksheet and a blank sheet for students to develop their stories.
The activity could be used individually, in pairs, or as a group writing activity.
