WRITING WIZARDS

Students write and "publish" their own novel

In Writing Wizards, we foster a love of writing by guiding our students to write and publish their own short novel! Using literature like Harry Potter and The Chronicles of Narnia as inspiration, each pair of students designs a fantasy world that includes major and minor characters, fantastic settings, an extended backstory and a world of wonder.  The authors use artwork and brainstorming to design plot twists and dynamic characters. Teachers guide the students, providing contextual mini-lessons on writing techniques that include the use of dialogue, detailed descriptions, sensory-rich word choice, and character development. At the end of the course, students take home their completed novel!

In this class students will:

  • Design a story setting and protagonist
  • Learn the key components of a work of fiction and use a story planner to create their own conflict, climax and resolution
  • Learn how to use dialogue in their story
  • Learn how to use "gem word" synonyms in their story
  • Learn how to "stretch out" a scene in their story by adding dialogue, details and descriptions
  • Learn how to create a "colorful" protagonist
  • Edit and revise their story
  • "Publish" their story complete with cover, illustrations, dedication page and an "About the Author" sheet
