Assignment 7 – Storytime – #edtechcca7
This assignment is about writing a story. I made this tool as a prompt for game design students to come up with ideas for new video games. I’ve heard of English teachers using similar tools (a set of cards) as a prompt for story writing.
Generate two random characters, a location and an objective using the tool below and then try writing a plausible story based on the random elements. The story may be for a book, film or videogame.
Remember that most stories start with a character who wants to achieve a goal and ends with the character achieving it. It’s the middle part of the story that is the hardest – when the character comes up against an obstacle that they must overcome to achieve their goal.
