Students use a template to help them plan stories with alternative pathways for their friends to read.

This teaching resource gives students the opportunity to plan their own narrative story to write with alternative story lines and endings.

Students plan their writing with a solid beginning, then create alternative storylines which lead in different directions. After they have planned all their storylines, they can use the Choose Your Own Destiny Template to create their preferred storyline.
