Week 6 (February 8th)


English: To engage with the text.

This week you will build a plan to help you write your own short story. Using what you have learned from the lesson on the Demon Dentist write a prologue for your own story. Write one or two short paragraphs that tell the reader about the location and time in which the story takes place. 

Think about:

  • The genre of the story

  • Building suspense and interest
