Project Proposal & Calendar

End of Term 2


Name: Sal Thompson

Period:  K


Project Proposal

Answer any three of the following questions.

                So far, I enjoyed transformation stories that contain either transformations or alien/alien worlds. The one type that I dislike is time travel because there are too many loose ends not answered, and many of the paradoxes confuse me.

The medium that I plan to work within is creating a short story. Along with the short story I plan to map out my story on the pearltrees app.

                The theme or message of my short story is that when faced with mysterious and unexplainable circumstances, people will jump to conclusions without gathering facts. I chose this theme because many of the characters in this story jump to conclusions about who the killer is without actually gathering clues.
