Why Lesson Planet?
How is a story like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich? Use making a sandwich as a metaphor to remind your writers that a good, solid beginning, a rich and rewarding middle, and an ending that brings everything together spices up a story. You gather the bread, peanut butter, and jelly. Although this plan calls for the instructor to build the sandwich, you might ask a class member to construct as you narrate and draw the parallels.
