What would you do first? Some people would panic. They would either sit frozen or start screaming. Others would have a cool head, and do something about it. A scientifically minded student might even know how to reverse the process. Since this is a little silly, you could also take a silly approach, so as that the teacher gets swept into the trash can.

Based on your topic, I would assume that your assignment is to write a fictional short story. You have several options for a beginning. The two simplest options would be to start your story as the accident is occurring or immediately after the teacher has been shrunk. As to what happens next, try to imagine what you and your peers would do if such thing actually occurred. What would you say? What would your friends say? How would you help your teacher? Consider that your story will need a beginning a middle and an end. You may want to create an outline of your story before you begin writing it. Brainstorm ideas for each of the three sections your story will need. then, use this list like a road map as you write.
