Reflection: Lesson Planning Writing Frightening Details for a Rough Draft - Section 1: Lesson Opener


Many of my students wanted to start another story after they read these sentences based on the sentence.  I thought that was great that they were inspired to write a new story. I had them go through drafting another plot diagram before they drafted it and then gave them an extension on their rough draft. Since so many were inspired by the sentences, I would use them for a brainstorming day if I were to teach this lesson again.
