Story A GoGo is some of the best fun you can have inside the classroom. An interactive boardgame that’s loosely based on Joseph Campbell’s hero’s journey, Story A GoGo harnesses the fun of game play onto the principles of plot construction and character development.
By the end of a session of Story A GoGo every child in the class will have constructed, step-by-step, a compelling, coherent, and original short story – something that will surprise and delight even themselves. Story A GoGo is ideal for both engaged and disengaged students, as it can be played in teams, drawing out even the most reluctant writer with its funny, unexpected and delightful prompts.
Developed by YA author Gabrielle Williams (who has been shortlisted for a number of awards and was named by Cameron Woodhead of The Age as, ‘the funniest YA author around’), this boardgame is a brand new way to engage students and teach them the process of writing a creative piece.
Perfect for years 7 – 10.
