The story, lesson plan, content guide and other "The Lady or the Tiger?" printable PDFs listed at the right compose the climactic learning experience in an early module of three lessons which introduce the concept of  binary . 

In the first lesson, the class shares a community reading of an adaptation of Frank R. Stockton's classic cliffhanger short story "The Lady, or the Tiger?" with each learner writing an ending (or "version") of the story for homework. In the second lesson, the class derives mathematical tools for determining the number of versions of the story that are possible. In this third lesson, the class connects the multiple versions of the story with binary, the elemental structure of computers.

If a class can read the StoryCode adaptation of "The Lady or the Tiger?" in one session, the homework is obvious: write an ending to the story in which the choice made by each character at their decision point is made clear AND tell whether the lover lives or dies. Crafting a version of the story is a creative writing assignment that produces a spectrum of responses from terse single sentences to six page romantic thrillers.
