At PerfettoWritingRoom© we mean BUSINESS when it comes to writing. Don’t dare laugh at the notion that characterization, one element of story, is an essential first step in writing a master work!
We’re taking it a step further . . . we know that fiction writing, its introduction, overview, and application challenges the brain to think critically, and forces the writer to rethink even the minor steps of fiction and NONfiction writing, from pacing, order, logic, even SENTENCE STRUCTURE. The Elements of Fiction, used and implemented "Master"fully as done in this unit, is YOUR best friend!
The beauty and genius of this fantastic 80+ page, 3 PART, 7-week Master Course is that it is based on the premise that through the INTEGRATION of FICTION AND NONFICTION, writers of all stripes ultimately are stronger in BOTH.
This is a thoughtful, well-executed and complete product that begins with a glossary of terms, and then tackles essential writing information and application, through the lens of the first element of story, characterization. The information and activities prepare students for their final major writing projects: writing a character scene; and writing an analytical essay.
With lesson plans, common core standards, rubrics, assessments, and keys, all carefully organized...
