Scary Story Assignment

Directions: Using the plot diagram you completed, you are to write an original scary story with a fully-developed plot and effective dialogue. Please refer to the rubric on the back of the plot diagram to guide you as you write. The length is unimportant; it’s how well you tell your story that matters!
(If you wish, you may type the story out—just make sure you use a readable font and that the text isn’t too small or too large!)
