The Connected Story

This activity focuses on narration and description. Partners share the composition of a story one contributing a few lines then the other adding their few lines until the story is finished. The final product will be posted on a page dedicated to creative writing. Obviously some structure will be needed so that the story doesn’t become nonsensical.

Example :

Introduction –Once upon a time…. Where? When? Who? Description of setting and characters.

Body – Introduce additional characters as they relate to the main story. Pose a problem or complication. Describe a problem. Say what happens to the characters involved in the problem.

Conclusion – Explain how the problems or complications are resolved. If appropriate say what happens to any other characters. State the conclusion of the story. Say how things will be from now on.
