Narrative Twist - 7th grade

Choose any story in this unit and write a new ending for that story. Your new ending should show a major character changing as a result of the events in the original story. You can rewrite the ending starting from any point in the story that you choose. You need to add dialogue to your story. Try to make the ending as creative as possible.


  • Character is chosen
  • Picked logical events from the story
  • Showed a new/distinct decision the character would make
  • New ending to the story
