A Narrative Dimension
Write a collaborative story

a. Connect this activity to your literature studies and curriculum. With your students, discuss the experience of seeing Samara Golden’s work. Watch a video about her work here:

b. Think about Golden’s installation as the setting for a story, play, or movie. Ask students what story they imagine unfolding in this environment. 

c. With your students, generate a list of storytelling genres, for example: mystery, romance, horror, science fiction, etc. Ask students to divide into small groups. Ask each student group to choose a genre and write a collaborative story. The story should include some third person narrative and some dialogue. Be sure to develop the characters in the story. Each story should have a conflict and a resolution. Include at least three concrete objects or details that students remember about the installation. Present and discuss students’ stories. Are there similarities and differences?
