Writing– brainstorm ideas for the problem/main plot in your mystery story by learning about the different types of common problems featured in most mystery stories.

  • a secret
  • something is lost or missing
  • a crime/prank has been committed

For Homework, free-write at least THREE (3) different plots or problems, no more than 2-4 paragraphs per plot.  Imagine how different your plot would be if it took place in a different setting?  (Consider this like 3 different story-starters…we don’t want you to write a whole story let alone three, think of this more like a movie trailer)
