C=Combine How would the story change is Addie had the same personality as Kelsey?
Addie? Do you know the answer?
A=Adapt How would the story change if Joe was the most popular kid at school?
You're so cool Joe! I'm gonna vote for you!
Thank you Kevin!
M=Magnify How would the story change if there were more than three parties (Democrat, Republican, No-Name, etc.)?
Can we make a new party?
If Addie had the same personality as Kelsey, the "The Misfits would have never existed. She would be so shy that she wouldn't have talked to Skeezie when they were little. She would have also never stood up to Ms. Wyman about the Pledge. The No-Name party would have never existed. Bobby might have been a different person than what he is now.
P=Put to Other Use What would the gang have done to put Tonni to other use?
Would you like to be the face of the Third Party?
If Joe was the most popular kid at school, Addie could have made Joe president. Then, if Joe was president, everyone would vote for the No-Name party. Joe also might have been socially accepted. No one would judge him because he was gay. Also, the whole gang would have been popular by association.
E=Eliminate What would happen if the Gang of Five was never called names?
Haha! You suck Joe!
If there were more than three parties, then Addie probably wouldn't have made another party. If there were more than three parties, there would have been plenty more parties for Addie to join. Addie still might not stand for the pledge, but there might already be a party about name calling. Mr. Kiley and Ms. Wyman would have said no to making a new party when Bobby and Addie were talking to them about it. Bobby also wouldn't have had to make a speech that inspired many people.
R=Reverse What would have happened if Bobby's dad got cancer instead of his mom?
What would you like for lunch sweetie?
If DuShawn said no to being president, then Addie could have asked Tonni to be president. Tonni could have said yes and the No-Name Party could have won because she could boss people around to vote for her. Tonni could have been a very good replacement for DuShawn. Tonni would have wanted the same thing as DuShawn (freedom for all). Addie might have liked Tonni being their president.
If the Gang of Five was never called names, they would have never came up with the idea of the No-Name Party. Without the name calling, the Gang would have not stayed together. Bobby could have gone off to be friends with Kevin (the bad kid). He could have been teasing Joe with him. He could have called him names and The Gang of Five would never be.
No I don't...
If Bobby's dad got cancer instead of his mom, he might not have still been in Paintbrush Falls. His mom could have gotten an acting job somewhere else and had to take Bobby with her. They might be sad about his dad, but they will get over it just like Bobby and his dad did. Booby might not have eaten the sandwiches with marshmallow fluff and been called "Fluff". He probably would have eaten his dad's favorite food.
I don't know. What was Dad's favorite? I miss him.
