This Powerpoint focuses on Setting for a high school creative writing class. The presentation includes discussion questions on the various aspects of setting, the ways setting can tap into empathy, and also has examples from various texts to read and talk about in class.
Slides 11-13 have images of various places. Have students write on their own for three minutes for each image, using either sentences or bullet points to describe the setting and begin a story. Have students share in small groups and then share out to the class.
The last slide has a writing prompt for students to continue for the rest of class or for homework.
This presentation works best for a 60 minute class period, but can be adapted for 40-80 minutes.
