Reflection: Intervention and Extension Plotting our Horror/Thriller Story by Using a Plot Diagram - Section 3: Independent Practice

 

Many students were stuck on filling out their plot diagram because they had not thought through the whole story. I stopped them after I saw the majority of the class stuck and modeled my thinking about what I would do it I got stuck. I gave them the following options:

1) Ask a partner for an idea.

2) Start writing one scene in order to think about what could happen next or before.

3) Jot down the most exciting part of ending on the diagram in order to think about what could happen next or before.
