English:

Today you will finally be planning out your short story. Read the powerpoint below and use the planning sheet to help you map out your beginning, middle and end. Remember - good stories usually build up to a problem that finally gets resolved in the end. Use your map and setting description to help you consider the direction you want to go in with your story.
