I hope you all had a restful three-day-weekend! Don’t you wish EVERY weekend was a three-day weekend?
I’ve got your first offical Edmodo online assignment details! We’ll complete one or two of these every six weeks!
Q1. What is the assignment?
Your assignment is to write a narrative (a story, fiction or non-fiction) inspired by one of three photos I provide to you.
Q2. How long does my story need to be?
I’d like your narrative to be at least 5 paragraphs in length
Q3. What, specifically, must it contain?
Your narrative must include the following:
- A clear beginning/middle/end
- At least 1 – 2 main characters
- A recognizable setting
- An identifiable conflict/resolution
Q4. How do I turn this in, exactly?
You may turn your assignment in two different ways:
1. Type your narrative directly into Edmodo using the Assignment Alert that was sent to you
2. Type your narrative into a Word document, save it to your computer, and upload it into the Edmodo Assignment Alert.
Q5. How will I be graded?
Your assignment will be graded based on:
A. Story Structure (does your narrative have a beginning/middle/end?)
B. Story Elements (plot, setting, character, conflict, resolution)
C. Conventions (spelling, punctuation, grammar)
Q6. So…what do I write about exactly?
I’ve selected three different photographs to inspire you. Choose one, and write a creative story about the photograph that you chose. It can be based on something that’s really happened in your experience, or it can be completely and entirely from your imagination. Just be sure to stick with your criteria (see Q3)!
