Action Stories in Action

The students have been yearning to just write, write, write.  So rather than start our next unit early, we are instead letting our creative juices flow with our action stories.  The premise is easy:  only write the climax of the story, no beginning and no end.  This allows us to free up our time to really work on editing skills and pushing our vocabulary and allows me time to have lengthy writing conferences with each student creating goals for the upcoming trimester.  Students are allowed to make their stories gory as long as they make sense.

These will be due March 21st.
