Registration now open for The iCollaboratory's K-12 Scariest Stories/Fall Poetry Sponsored Project.

Whether it be a scary story or a fall poem, we encourage students to share their literary work and discuss it with one another. Students can use this project to develop their writing skills by sharing and discussing their narrated and/or illustrated (optional) writing in our online community.

The Scariest Stories project activities described below are designed to take about one hour a week in a school computer lab or on set of classroom computers. Teachers should plan to spend an hour a week in addition to the computer time. Students who get involved spend more time writing, sharing and discussing their stories.

Activity 2: The Scariest Stories Forum - October 8-14

Activity 3: Write & Share Your Scariest Stories - October 15-24
