How scared can you get in just thirty seconds? 

Ms. Knecht's English 7 classes wrote their own Half-Minute Horror stories! Although these stories may have taken only thirty seconds to read, Ms. Knecht's students worked hard on their stories for weeks! From studying examples, to brainstorming their own unique ideas, to writing multiple drafts and working with their writing groups, to sharing their final stories with the class, Ms. Knecht's students showed they are true authors! 

Check out some of their best sentences posted outside Ms. Knecht's classroom, room 35.
