Responding to Literature: James and the Giant Peach

Fifth grade reader/writers create an alternate ending to an episode in Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach in which our protagonist "loses" the chance to magically solve all his problems. Prompts students not only to write creatively and fluently, but to think critically by exploring possible outcomes. Link to the lively Roald Dahl official website. Rubric link is defunct.
