StoryTimed is a shared story writing site. Contribute to two different types of stories or start your own. Contribute to a Closed Book story by adding to the last posting without knowing how the story evolved from the beginning allowing for stories to take twists and turns based on author's knowledge of one piece of content. Open Stories allow authors to view stories from the beginning as they create a cohesive tale from start to finish.

In the Classroom

Create your own story on StoryTimed for your class or classes to write. Make both closed and open stories for student contributions with the same opening. Have students compare and contrast the finished stories and discuss how knowing the full story makes a difference vs just having a piece of information. Use an online tool such a Creately, reviewed here, to create a Venn Diagram to compare and contrast your finished products. Use examples of writing from the site for students to edit and view different styles of writing.
