I spent a lot of time yesterday, reading through my students’ adventure short stories. Some were fantastic; some were just OK. But all of the stories had some interesting nuggets that I wanted to be able to share out with the rest of the classes. So, as I was reading, I began to “capture” a line from every story — something interesting, intriguing. Some hint of the larger story. Then, I went into our Glogster site and created this Story Shard poster. Actually, this is the first of two that I am going to be creating (I am not quite done with all the stories.)
I like how it looks like a wall of stories, and there is something quite interesting about seeing all of these story shards together in a single place — sort of like a graffiti wall of ideas.
Peace (in the stories),
