This lesson is intended to be covered in four sessions of 50 minutes. Students must understand the plot of the play or story in order to rewrite the climax, falling action, and resolution of the work. As they write they should have a strong grasp of the protagonist and how that character develops throughout the literary work. This should be an enjoyable assignment for the students as they are empowered to create their own "happily ever afters," especially if they are given time to share their alternate endings.
