A Guide to Teaching Creative Writing: Fiction.
Christensen, Linda, Ed.; And Others
Intended for both elementary and secondary school teachers who have little or no experience in teaching creative fiction writing, this booklet presents sample lesson plans for writing short stories, fables, myths, mysteries, science fiction, and historical fiction. The lesson plans discuss such elements as plot, setting, characterization, mood, and conflict. Each lesson format is designed around the five elements of subject, purpose, form, speaker, and audience. In addition, the lesson plans are written on the premise that the writing process of prewriting, composing, and revising/editing is used for every assignment. Samples of student writing are included. Appendixes provide an evaluation checklist, a list of the forms of fiction, and a glossary. (HOD)
