Engaging stories are locked within just waiting for an inspiring prompt! Students enjoy discussing and writing about these moments, and they love to listen to their peers read aloud each week, which inspires confidence that each person truly does have something to say that other students want to hear! When we describe what we were seeing, hearing, smelling, feeling at the time, the reader feels he is right there. Leo Tolstoy calls this the “art of writing.”
These narratives alternate between colorful, intense, scary, quiet and reflective, and sometimes humorous. Students begin to enjoy writing and to put grammar skills into practice as they write about interesting events in their lives. The atmosphere of the class is interactive and affirming, with the goal of inspiring confidence in expression of thoughts and ideas.
