My sixth grade students are working to finish up an experimental writing unit around Interactive Fiction, using Twine to create Choose Your Own Ending stories. It’s been interesting to watch because the critical thinking skills necessary for planning and writing these stories is fairly complex. They are also learning a new software (Twine) and yesterday, I taught them a bit about using html code to add an image to their stories, if they want to do that.
I am hoping that most (all?) will be done by the end of today. We’ll see. I am hosting the files in my Google Docs, using the shortcut that I had found that allows you to host and share html (webpages) from within folders on Google Drive.
Here is one story that a student finished up yesterday. She seems to have “gotten” the concept of branching story paths.

Peace (in the choices),
i like the idea of using Google Drive to host your Twine files. We used a free hosting company which wasn’t very reliable. Have you tried interactive stories using YouTube. It looks really cool and something I’m going to try later this year with my Year 5 class.
Unfortunately, Google changed the way things work in Drive and you cannot host Twine stories there anymore (as far as I can tell).
