Product Description
Gina Conroy's "Release the Story in You" will do just that-- even if you've never thought of writing a story yourself! As you teach your students with this mini-course, you'll find yourself thinking of characters, settings, and possible conflicts. Written in language that even a non-writer can relate to, your students will have a solid understanding of characters, location and plot when they finish this course. Totally worth the cost!

Everything you need to get started on teaching your students how to write a story is in this mini unit.

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 and plotting.
- Worksheets and homework handouts for easy reference
- Resources where you can get further education on creating dynamic characters.

This lesson works with multiple grades in middle school and high school.

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

Mom of 15 year old with dyslexia said, "For once, Ruth doesn't feel like a "failure" or that she "can't write."
