Fiction Writing. Characterization [and] Plot [and] Setting. ArtsEdge Curricula, Lessons and Activities.
In this curriculum unit, students will explore fiction writing in three lessons--characterization, setting, and plot. The unit intends for them to learn how to use characterization, dialogue, point of view and other literary devices in fiction writing. Each of the lessons offers an overview; suggests length and grade level; lists subjects and subtopics; cites dimensions of learning and intelligences being addressed; notes equipment and materials needed; lists teacher resources; and addresses National Standards for Arts Education and other standards. Each lesson also identifies instructional objectives and strategies; provides a detailed, step-by-step instructional plan; suggests assessment and extension activities; and contains teacher references. Attached are guidelines for writing dialogue and constructing a plot, writing assignments, and standards for developing scoring rubrics. (NKA)
