Wow! This is so wonderful. I love that students are able to create instead of just pick plot elements out of another story. I loved using this in my 7th grade Reading classroom. Double thumbs up!

Will adapt this lesson plan for an interdisciplinary team unit for 6th grade students using "Pirates!" as our theme. This is in support of a graduate class project at Rockford University. Aye! Thank you! Capt. Briggs (Yes, a real Captain! U.S.Army, Retired AND a DoD "Troops To Teachers" program participant.)
