Students will be introduced to various elements of the fantasy adventure writing genre and guided in the creation of their own short stories. Elements of the fantasy adventure genre will be explained. Then I will help the students brainstorm and plan a short story according to those elements. The lesson will follow the following format:
1.) Explanation of the Fantasy Adventure Genre
2.) Guided Discussion & Brainstorming Process
3.) Guided Instruction on planning the short story
My teaching style is big on hands-on manipulation. Students will have the opportunity to work in tandem with me, on the own lesson worksheets, while engaging in peer review discussions throughout the entire class.
Students should have prior knowledge of basic writing skills.
