Have your students practice the 5 parts of a plot by writing a creative ending to the short story, "The Lady or the Tiger?" Leaving the reader guessing, John Stockton has written a classic short story in which an accused man must pick his fate from two doors (one with a lady - who he will have to marry - and the other with a tiger - which will devour him on the spot). The story, not complete is missing the falling action and resolution. This project has students finishing the story how they see it. The 3-page document comes with the directions, rubric, and pre-write worksheet.
