Create a Map to Elaborate a Story

I learned this trick from a writing book for adults and adapted it for my students.  When a writer creates a map of the setting, it helps them elaborate more of the story.  I found when I had my students create a map of their short stories, it helped them keep track of their plot.  They moved their characters on a journey from one place to another.
