Evidence & Sources Assignment
Last week, Ms. Lueke assigned this project. Instructions are here. If you’ve not completed this assignment, now is the time to do so!
The task is, essentially, to provide three reasons that support a claim. And for each reason, provide three pieces of evidence (with a source).
Group Round Stories
Here’s the rules: You can visit any one of these stories (as many as you like each day). And you can add up to a half a page of new content to any story you like. But that’s it for the day–just a half-a-page. And then you can’t add to that story the next day (to give someone else a chance to add to it). If you want to go back the day after that to keep adding, you can (but then take the day after that off).
So, for any story you want, you can write half a page on a given day, then you can’t add to it the next day, then you can add another half a page the next day, then you can’t add to it the next day, and so on.
NOTE: I first made these from my Google account, but realized NSD Google accounts couldn’t access them. So, I’ve remade them in Aidan’s NSD google account. Hopefully, it should work now! Now it only works from an NSD account. Here’s the link to the folder with all the stories if that’s easier for anyone.

- I peeked through the curtains. There was a limo parked outside with two bodyguards. I heard a knock at the door…
- The bell rang, and I sprinted towards my locker. I had to get out of there before…
- As soon as I boarded the train, I began my letter to my sister. I did it. I sold everything and am on my way to…
- We sat around the campfire in eerie silence, nobody wanting to bring up our predicament. Everything was going to have to come out anyway, we might as well get it over with.
- “Drink it, quick!” I looked at the bottle. The contents were unlike any I’d ever seen. I closed my eyes and drank it in one gulp…
- “Is there anyone in there?” I wondered aloud, staring up at the Gothic castle. “The letter said they’d meet us…”
- “How could you?” I asked in disbelief. “After everything we’ve been through, I thought you were the one person I could trust. I can’t believe you…”
- “It’s okay, you can come out, you don’t have to be afraid. Here, take my hand.” The hand that reached out toward me was like any I’d ever seen before.
- The footprints in the snow were fresh. They veered off the path and into the woods. I had to make a choice. It was now or never.
- Ellen squeezed down the narrow aisle of the plane looking for row M. She stuffed her backpack under the seat in front of her with her feet and buckled up. As the plane lifted off the ground, the pilot welcome them aboard their flight to Iceland. Wait, what? This wasn’t the flight to…?
- I was about to enter my house when I saw a little dog running down the street toward the busy intersection. There was nobody with him. Without thinking, I took off after him and…
- That’s odd, I thought to myself as I reached the next landing and glanced up at the next set of stairs. I don’t remember there being another set of stairs here before. Is this what the old man was talking about when he said…
- I can talk to animals. It’s just something I’ve always been able to do. I didn’t even know it was weird until some kids at school saw me shooting the breeze with a murder of crows at recess one day. Now I have to keep it a secret. If anyone else finds out…
