Our creative writing book for high school students takes off project-wise where our MC 7-II: Completely Creative takes off—with more detailed story writing techniques and advanced creative essays.
This book may follow any first semester MC book (from 5 I through 9 I) and/or MC 5 II or MC 7 II. Following our normal Directed Writing Approach, this book delves into story writing while taking students by the hand with pre-writing strategies such as character development, perspective, dialogue, speech tag words, hindrances and problems, resolution, time period writing, using color in stories, protagonist development, onomatopoeia, comparative words and actions, verb-generated writing; show-don’t-tell descriptions, character mannerisms, first and third person story telling, six advanced story writing elements, actions and encounters, weaving background information, conciseness techniques; giving voice to characters through dialogue, and much, much more!
Story writing projects include a Piggy Back Story of a Queen’s Escape; an original very short story of perspective; Piggy Back Story of a Meager Shoemaker (with detailed expansion story lessons); Piggy Back Story of The Gift of the Magi (with different time and location details); Blind Person Perspective Story; and Original Historical Fiction. Creative Essays include Advanced Time Line Essay (ten years); Three Color Essay (including Patterned Paragraphs); Dialogue Essay Between Two Authors (including giving voice to the two authors); Five Paragraph Essay (or 1-3-1 Essay); and Definition Paragraph.
