Detailed Description of the Program
Students will create a choose your own adventure style story for Homer.
Using the Interactive Fiction: Mapping All Possibilities, have students decide what would happen to Homer throughout his trip. Maybe he chooses not to take the assignment to begin with. Maybe he eats the lotus flowers and stays too long on the island.

Once their story is mapped out, students will use Google Slides or Google Forms to make their story interactive.

The final projects could be published online using Google Sites with links to student’s Slides and Forms.
