A. Answer questions below to define basic elements of the scenario and summarize the events and decision. Example answers are italicized.

  1. What is this case about? (i.e. what is the theme?)
  2. What learning goals are being addressed?
  3. What role does the learner take on? Write a brief description of the protagonists' perspective (gender, age, personality, etc.)
  4. What is the protagonist's goal? What obstacles stand in the way?
  5. Who are the other characters in this story? (What differing perspectives do they represent?)
  6. *For each question, ask yourself: How is this supporting the learning goals?

B. Summarize your story in three parts. Include at least one decision point in each part:

  1. Beginning (introduce the setting, main character, goal, and obstacle)
  2. Middle (make the protagonist's likelihood of accomplishing the goal seem increasingly unlikely)
  3. End (resolution - the protagonist reaches, or falls short of the goal)
