Are you tired of reading about flat, two-dimensional, cookie cutter characters? Then your writers are ready to take characterization to the next level.
Challenge your students to dig deeper into their main character's inner and outer journey and watch as these characters come to life. Through this lesson, their stories will explode with new and exciting possibilities that will not only satisfy them as a writer, but you as a teacher.
Included in this lesson:
- Original curriculum from a published author who uses the same techniques to craft dynamic characters and stories
- Questions and prompts to get students digging deeper into characterization
- Worksheets and homework handouts for easy characterization reference
- Resources where you can get further education on creating dynamic characters.
This lesson works with multiple grades in middle school and high school and is part of a unit study called "Release the Story in You," however you don't have to purchase all lessons to impact your students' writing and start them on the path to creating dynamic characters now.
As a published author and teacher, I know how difficult it can be to engage your students in writing. That's why I created these lesson plans that connect and excite young writers. But don't take my word for it.
“If you are thinking about publishing a book, she’s amazing. If you just want to write a story, she’s amazing. I highly recommend her classes.” – Katherine, 11 yrs old
“I enjoyed this class very much. This class is easy to understand because it goes at a perfect pace and is taken step by step. This was awesome and so much fun! I hope the book I’m writing gets published one day! -Casey, 14 yrs old
“I liked how Gina Conroy put the way of planning stories into different types of games and used P.L.A.Y. to bring home the points about Playmate, Location, Action, and Game. :) It makes it fun to read and a more engaging way to think about plotting.” – Danielle, 14 yrs old
