Ghost Story Assignment

You will be required to create your own ghost story (1-2 pages). Later, you will be
required to orally present your ghost story to the class. The story itself can be
something that actually happened to you or someone else or it can be something that
you make up on your own. At the conclusion of your oral presentation the class will be
asked to guess if you’re lying or telling the truth.

Writing assignment – 24 marks (6+1 Traits Rubric)
Oral presentation – 16 marks
