A Writing Assignment: Chapter V

On Friday I assigned for my sophomores to write a new chapter to the short story “ A Horseman in the Sky” that we just read. (I know it’s unusual for short stories to have chapters.) They could turn it in today for 2 extra credit points, 1 tomorrow, and it’s due on Wednesday. I had 9 students turn it in today! That’s excellent percentage of students considering I have 18 students with two were absent on Friday, and one was absent today. I’m pleased and looking forward to reading their new endings to the story!
Great way to involve students in story writing and make them bring out their own ideas on a subject

I don't know the story, but I'm intrigued by this new chapter! I had a feeling you are the kind of teacher who inspires their students and that ratio proves it.
