DAY TWO: Students write in class. We often set writing as a homework task, but spending a whole lesson writing in class time can be an extremely beneficial task as it gives you, the teacher, the opportunity to work with individual students and provides a focused environment for students to work. *Obviously, if time does not permit, you could assign this for homework.

DAY THREE: Students share their draft stories with their peers and they review, comment on and edit each other’s work. This is a beneficial exercise for students to learn to be constructively critical and for them to see what you look for in written work.
