As the teacher, I will choose the groups and assign spots for each group.
Students Choose Writing Task
Students gather in groups.
Share Story with Partners
Each group will send one representative to choose a writing prompt from a hat. The group will be responsible for responding to the prompt.
Mingle with Other Groups
Each student is responsible for a different writing task. One student writes the introduction, one student writes the main body paragraph and one student writes the conclusion.
Put the parts (Introduction, body and conclusion) of the writing assignment together.
Use your part of the writing (introduction, body or conclusion) to build stories with other students. Then reflect, do your stories still make sense? How can we create effective stories using the introduction, body and conclusion?
