Product Description

Being able to write creatively is a helpful and fun writing skill, but creative writing is often left aside in favor of grammar during the school year. Through lessons focusing on vocabulary words, describing things, using pictures to tell a story, plot, grammar relating to dialogue, character development, tenses, and other stylistic writing advice, students will understand the basic structure of a narrative, how to construct a story, and use good writing skills to make their writing vivid. Example sentences and stories are included, along with plenty of chart examples and paragraphs explaining the concepts. Worksheets, writing prompts, in-class assignments, and homework assignments are included throughout; this course requires full teacher-participation and involvement.

Designed to be a creative writing unit during the school year or as a summer course (1-2 weeks per lesson), it may also be spread out over a year by alternating lessons with your primarily language arts curriculum (3-4 weeks per lesson). Originally created as a homeschool group course, it may be used with ideally 4-6 students, though it can also work for single students up to groups of 12. Ages 10-14. 10 lessons, 96 pages, softcover, spiralbound.

In order to use this book, you will need to print out a free copy of the "Pictures for Unit 5" e-book (access code and link included), and make photocopies of the student handout pages provided in the back of the book. This course also recommends that students have a binder with paper and dividers in which to store their work.

    Story Quest really sparked my boys imagination

    My boys loved this curriculum. I have one motivated writer and one that is not so motivated. Both personalities thoroughly enjoyed each lesson. It sparked their imaginations and allowed them to create thoughtful and creative original stories. The vocabulary lessons and review allowed my boys to use new words that they had never been exposed to. This ensured a better quality of story.

    I loved the way this curriculum gave them the opportunity to write in their own unique style too. Creative writing was something that I was never particularly fond of and so to teach this worried me. With this curriculum you are assured that your child will love to write in the end.

    Story Quest is a huge asset to any family's homeschooling curriculum.
