Good writing evolves through self-questioning. One of the biggest challenges for a teacher in giving a writing assignment is getting the students to ask themselves the right questions. Students have a wealth of background experience and information to use in their writing, but sometimes find it difficult to put their ideas down on paper. This book offers topics, questions and story organizers for the teacher to sue in guiding their students through the narrative writing process, both personal and fictional. For ease in presentation, a story prompt, a sample story organizer, and a sample story are provided for each kind of narrative writing.
The content of this 64-page workbook includes: Teacher Instructions, Personal Narrative Writing and Story Organizer Explanation, Story Prompts, Nitty Gritty of Self Editing, Personal Narrative Prompts, Fictional Narrative Prompts and Organizers and Idea Fragments for Fictional Narratives.
