lesson plan overview
- Write a multi-part fictional narrative that logically ties in with actual locations on the school campus.
- Create an engaging narrative experience for the reader through expressive and provocative narration, animation, and/or images.
- Evaluate and deconstruct the narratives of others through class-wide discussion and reflection of own narrative.
- NOTE: At the first location’s story, writers should also provide hints to the readers of where the second location is. The second location should have clues that lead to the third location and so on.
STEP 2. Then have students explore their school campus and choose three to four locations where they want their story to take place.
STEP 7. They then create a channel for their story and make it public.
STEP 8. Students can then share their stories and roam the school with Aurasma activated, unraveling each other’s narratives by venturing from one location to the other. The first symbol (and thus, the first part of the story) should be given to the reader at the beginning.
