In "The Magicia's Nephew," C.S. Lewis uses very descriptive writing to set up the setting of a fantasy story, allowing the reader to be immersed in his fantastical world. The novel itself is a useful mentor text when teaching both fantasy and descriptive writing.
On this handout, using examples from the text, students are given inspiration to create their own fantasy world and story. They are given a plot diagram on which they may fill in the different plot elements to do some pre-writing for their story. This is a useful tool to later write a rough draft of a fantasy story,
