Progressive Story!

An Opportunity

  • This is based on a project called Write On...Our Progressive Story.
  • There will be three to five classes in each progressive story depending upon enrollment in the project.
  • Class one writes an introduction to a fictional story. Please keep the topic in line with something that your principal, pastor, and the superintendent of schools would be proud to read.
  • Class two reads the introductory paragraph and writes the next paragraph to extend the story.
  • Class three reads the first two paragraphs and continues the plot and characters.
  • Class four reads the first three paragraphs and writes the concluding paragraph. The fourth class creates a title for the story.
  • The students will make a collaborative drawing or drawings to illustrate their paragraph.
  • Registration is closed for the 2017-2018 school year and the writing be on-going from December through April.

The Next Steps

  • Please go to the RCAN Collaborate site to register for the mailing list for the 2018-2019 school year.
  • Once there are four classes registered in a similar grade level, I will share contact information with the group.
  • Each teacher is required to make contact with the next teacher in the group to let them know when a class has finished and the next group should begin.
  • Create a free Wikispaces account and ask to join the wiki. I can provide you with a guest wiki account. Once you join you will have editing privileges for the page. Use THIS link to watch a video on how to register for a free account, how to edit the story page, and how to add an image. You may want to ask your school technology integration specialist for assistance.
  • Classes can creatively extend the project by recording narrations and creating an audiobook, a video, or meeting each other via a Skype call.
