Never in a million years would I have ever predicted that I would somehow incorporate Martha Stewart into my teaching English Language Learners.  However, she just unveiled her new website and she has several “Mad Lib”- like stories that students can complete, email, and then post the url to the story on a website, blog, or online journal.   Of course, the stories are not your typical Mad Libs!

The game is called So Martha, and students have to write in nouns, adjectives, etc. — just like in a typical Mad Libs game.   Students have a choice of a variety of stories, including ones on (of course!) weddings, food, and parties.

I’ve placed it on the Examples of Student Work page at the bottom, and it’s entitled Student “Martha Stewart” Stories.
