Assignment Write a Short Story Over the next few lessons you will be writing a short story—a work of fiction. Here is how you’ll be graded: 30 points: You complete and submit a narrative arc which outlines your plot. This is a PowerPoint attachment in the online school. 10 points: Your story should contain all five parts of a narrative arc: exposition, complicating incident, rising action, climax, and falling action. 10 points: The plot should center on a conflict that a main character faces. 10 points: In addition to the main character, create one or more secondary characters who will participate in the story. 5 points: Narrate the story from a suitable point of view—first person, third-person omniscient, third-person limited, or (in rare cases) second person. 10 points: Use realistic-sounding dialogue to help develop characters and move the action forward. 5 points: Use vivid, precise, concrete words and phrases to make your story come alive. 20 points: Your story should be at least 5 paragraphs long. Remember, paragraphs have 5-7 sentences each. You will earn a score out of 100 points for submitting your planning and for submitting a final copy of your short story. Planning Brainstorm a topic for your short story. Complete a narrative arc on which to outline the plot. Drafting Write the first draft of your short story, and remember to save often.
