This unit will challenge students to rethink the traditional ways of reading and writing. Students will use hypertext programs that require their participation in text-based, role-playing computer simulations. These programs allow the reader to make decisions about the path the story should follow. All choices made by the reader can affect the outcome of the story. Once students spend enough time playing these simulations, they will be required to create their own hypertext story.
The program students will use to create their own hypertext stories is called StorySpace. To visit the StorySpace web site, click here.
