Writing a Mystery

Today we are going to begin to write a mystery story.  To do this you must first pre-plan all the action.  In a way, you will need to “reverse engineer” the story by working backwards from the end.  This allows you to plant all the necessary clues so youur story can grow over time and lead the reader on an adventure.

To start our planning we observed the two documents linked below and worked with them together as a class.  We first brainstormed to practice using them and then worked inividually on our own stories.
