    No matter what your opinion about "good literature", this course will work for you, since it doesn't tell you what beautiful literature is, but rather teaches how to think with the skills of observation, deduction and evaluation. Students will use the Socratic Method of learning as they examine the five elements of literature: plot, conflict, setting, character and theme. Graphic organizers, book lists, discussion questions, excerpts and other materials are included. 97 pages, softcover, spiral-bound. This is the workbook only; DVDs not included.

Eight lessons will explain the fundamentals of writing fiction (enjoyably!) while exercises reinforce what has been taught and worksheets help with assess progress. Students are taught a 3-step story model, where there is a situation involving a character with a problem, an objective, and obstacles over which this character seeks to triumph. Exercises help strengthen the imagination, encourage revisions, reinforce elements of writing, and require original writing. 80 pages, softcover and spiral-bound. Answers included.
