Overview
In this module, students will write alternate history. Using computational thinking, students will select and research an event in history, map the high and low points of that event as though it were a story, identify one change to make in that event which would alter the story, then design and write the altered version as a short story or play. This module may be used as a co-teaching or inter-disciplinary project with social studies.
