An Author Inside Everyone
Designed for classes with a wide range of abilities, these workshops offer every student an opportunity to work through the storytelling process, and begin writing original stories. (Sessions with another artist may be added to fashion those stories into books or songs.) Students listen to a story, finding story elements, characters, setting, problem and solution. The class is guided through creating a story together, which the artist tells. Then students use the same process to create their own stories: they may write their own version by adding new details and twists on the original story told by the artist or the story created by the class, or they may develop entirely new stories, working singly or in groups.
Appropriate for ages: Grade 3, Grade 4, Grade 5

I would definitely recommend this to a colleague. Ms Wolfe worked very well with the students. She is a very patient person. The students loved the presentation and asked if we can have her come back again.
