Exactly the news article I needed! Coincided with one of my teaching materials in my guide book. A crashed car. A cockroach. What a story! I like using news articles to teach students how to write creatively, yet realistically.
Challenging J to brainstorm a story plot twist and she really cracked her head.
I rejected her ideas for a few attempts as they were not impressive for me enough.
J did it for the 2nd round! Great job!
After the brainstorming exercise, she jotted them down as part of the learning process. Time zipped past but it was a fulfilling lesson.
I actually wanted to stop at 2 plot twists, but she wanted to try more. That’s a very commendable spirit!
