Jane Godwin: Online Session: 4 steps to a great story (Grade 3 and 4)

Session Info:

An interactive talk that includes some simple, quick and fun writing activities. Jane talks about different ways we can develop an idea, demonstrating this using the students’ contributions and also examples from her own books. This is used as a springboard for some three-minute writing activities that students can build on later if they wish to create their own story. Jane then talks about the writing process – planning, drafting, language, character and plot – and give the students tips from her own experience as a writer and publisher.

Explaining the writing process in four straightforward steps and providing examples from Jane’s own experience allows students to feel equipped to tackle – and master! – narrative writing.
