These students were divided into two groups. 20 students were in the control group and 20 students were in the experimental group. Pre-test and post-test as research tools were taken to assess whether students use figurative words in their story or not and a checklist was designed to find out the pattern of story writing and scores were given to the students according to it. A statistical package of social sciences was used to analyze the data.
