1.)Distribute portable keyboards to the students.
2.)Divide the class into three groups and assign each group a different writing prompt. Set the timer for 15 minutes.
3.)Let each student develop the beginning to a story. When the timer sounds, have them pass the keyboards to the person on their right within their groups.
4.)Give the students a few minutes to read what has already been written. Set the timer again, and they will develop the middle of the story using the first person's beginning.
5.)After the timer sounds, pass the keyboards to the right again so that a third person in the group gets the keyboard. This person will write the ending to the story in the last 15 minutes.
6.)When the time is up, have the students give the keyboard back to the person who started the story. He/she will proofread and edit.
7.)The last step is to print and share the stories with the class.
