Students are to select one of nine pictures and write a 'story' (narrative) based on the picture. Much imagination / creativity to be utilized in this assignment. Students have been given literary licence to expand the perimeters of the picture to write a story that interests them. Three key components for marking:
1. Students have been assigned an editing partner. Once students have their outline completed they need to get their editing partner to make adds and changes (documented advice). Once completed, the student must then do their 'draft/rough copy'.
2. Once rough draft is complete the editing partner has to use the assigned sheet and make further adds and changes. Proof of editing must be submitted for marks. Hence, both the outline and the rough draft editing sheet must be handed into the teacher.
3. Final copy of each individual student's narrative.
