SHORT STORY NOVEL ASSIGNMENT: VIDEO GAME PROJECT
Have your students turn their reading of any short story or a novel into a video game! Included in this resource are 8 different assignments that can be used individually or as a major final project.
INCLUDED IN YOUR PURCHASE:
To The Video Game Developer
Students write a letter to a video game developer to persuade them to make their book/story into a video game. This assignment will allow students to practice letter writing format, as well as demonstrate their understanding of plot, character, and conflict.
Select Your Players
Students will choose two characters from the story to be playable characters (controlled by the gamer) and one character to be a non-playable character (controlled by the game). They will examine each characters' backstory, strengths, and weaknesses.
