Description: This app lesson develops English Language Arts and Early Literacy students’ ability to identify story structure and analyze storytelling elements.
Instructional Objective: Students will select and analyze a short story by completing a storyboard graphic organizer and by justifying if they did or did not enjoy the story.
Step 1: Students will use the 301+ Short Stories app to select a story.
Step 2: Students will use the PureFlow app to “storyboard” the main events of the story (at minimum the rising action, climax, and resolution).
Step 3: Students will use the Hanx Writer app to compose their justification(s) that state and explain why they did or did not like the story they selected.
