On the back of this page are a few true stories about Abraham Lincoln’s life and times. Read them all and then choose your favorite. Rewrite the story as if you were there. First, decide who is telling the story: are you the teacher, a lawyer, a friend, the old woman or some fictitious character who saw the whole thing? What is your point of view? Re-imagine the setting to better describe the details. Make a brief outline of the plot, beginning, middle and end.
