Thanks to master teacher Liza Levenson, I was invited back to teach a 2-part workshop on Mystery Writing to the fabulous fourth graders at Bannockburn Elementary School!
I loved working with the two classes on brainstorming, crafting, and writing the mysteries.
Teacher Monica Obstgarten created this visual for the outline we came up with for our stories. Students used this outline to dream up terrific, suspenseful (and often funny) stories. Try using the outline to write your own mystery.
