Creating a Short Story
In this lesson, students will write a story on the computer. Then, they can illustrate it by using shapes or a drawing program.
First, students will write an outline of a story they want to write. Then, when they go to the computer, they will type their story on the computer.
Here is an outline format that will help students get started writing their outline for their story.
Setting: You need to write down information about your setting. Where is your story taking place? What do you see in the setting?
Characters: You need to write down information about your main character. What is your main character like? What conflict is your character going to experience? How will your character overcome the conflict?
Plot: You need to write a few sentences or ideas to help you remember what you are going to write about in the beginning, then in the middle, and then in the end.
After you write your outline, you are ready to type your story on the computer.
When your story is complete, you can edit your work and illustrate your story on the computer by using shapes or a drawing program.
You can grade the students on their story outline, on their final story, and on how they illustrated the story.
