Supplementary material for a National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) unit or club.
- A "prep" tic-tac-toe with options for lots of different learners
- A plotting worksheet for midway through
- 2 fun "last day" activities: a set of 3 mad-libs using students' novels and a group discussion activity that puts their different characters in interesting or silly situations.
I've used all of these for four years running and seen them work very well. Best used as a supplement with Young Writer's Program Writer's Workbook (http://ywp.nanowrimo.org), with lesson on types of plot and wrapping things up taking place just after the Dialogue lesson in the YWP workbook.
