Theater I: Neighborhood Story

Today in class you were given time to begin the second part of our neighborhood project.  Using the neighborhood from your maps, your task was to write down a story that you remember from your neighborhood.  

  • Take a look at your map for inspiration.  Sometimes you can't remember what happened until you see WHERE it happened. 
  • Keep your story classroom appropriate, but tell the truth.
  • Leave out names if you would like people to remain anonymous.
  • If you REALLY can't remember ANYTHING that happened... go ahead and make something up.  Please don't tell anyone else in the class which parts of your story are true and which are false.  (It's not lying... it's "make believe.")
Neighborhood Story Assignment (15pts)
