Into Another World: Short Stories

Into Another World: Short Stories


"You can't use up creativity. The more you use the more you have." - Maya Angelou


Deep inside every person is a voice waiting to be heard, a world waiting to come to life. Through the use of prompts, literary devices, and descriptive language, students breathe life into characters, scenes, and interactions between the two. Taking a single picture, students will pull out the characters and send them twirling across the page. Students lead readers through a forest of their own creation—blindfolded—and tell them what they see, help them feel what they feel, and let them listen to what they hear. Through the use of an organized presentation and plot, students engage the audience in a way they never have before.


Milestone: Ability to create organized works aimed at explaining complex, human emotions that engage the audience."
