Which path will you choose? One leads to treasure and the other to peril! In this fun one-day class, students will collaborate to compose a Choose Your Fate narrative. Through the exploration of numerous twists, turns, pitfalls, and plots, students will learn the possibilities and joys of storytelling.

Teaching artists will engage students in a discussion about narrative and help the class create the first part of the story. When a pivotal choice is reached, the class will split into two groups, and each group will continue the story down one of the paths. After multiple action-packed story lines have been created, each student will write their very own endings. Along the way, teaching artists will encourage class discussion about narrative elements, such as character, setting, and conflict. The story will be told in second person, so any reader can imagine themselves as the protagonist.
