When we finished reading A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, we were asked show our understanding of the story. My partner, Kanoa, and I decided to write a story. I learned how to write a story with vocabulary from A Christmas Carol. It was difficult to use Dickens vocabulary in such a modern story. It was easy to write the story once I got going. Next time, I would set up specific times when my partner and I could work on the project together.
