Before you can write or plan your writing you have to be able to think. Creative visualization is an effective and fun tool that allows students to focus and access their knowledge and ideas that are the basis for authentic, inspired and thoughtful narrative writing or oral storytelling in any genre. The teacher guides the students through the process and then students can use the process again on their own whenever they need help in the beginning stage of the writing process.
This packet includes all the exercises I also sell individually: Finding your Storyteller, Plot Development, Main Character or Protagonist, Problem Character or Antagonist, and Setting. Narrative writing or storytelling has many applications. Please review the extension activities at the end of each exercise for use in character building, music, art, dance and other disciplines. Supported Common Core standards for grades 7-12 are included. Please see my free Creative Visualization for Finding an Animal Character for a complete sample of a similar exercise to the ones found in this packet. Enjoy! Elizabeth Scheib shinelikechildren.com
