This activity helps students to come up with ideas to start writing a creativity narrative story. It is an excellent activity for those students who often have ‘writer’s block’. Students first fill out a Questionnaire without knowing what the final assignment is. After it is complete, students receive the second handout which explains how the Questionnaire information is to be worked into their creative narrative story. This unit offers an optional opportunity to review the elements of narrative story writing. Peer editing and sharing of the stories orally are optional add-ons to this small unit. A full marking rubric is included.
This is a great lesson plan for Teachers on Call to use when they arrive at a classroom without a plan for them.
