Engage your students with the Classroom Story! The Classroom Story is a hands-on, creative, and interactive instructional approach that: has no acronyms, makes writing fun, is closer to play than work, and must be experienced to be understood.
The teacher acts as narrator and moderator by creating a setting, inciting event, general plot, and any game elements. Students engage with the the story by creating characters, and becoming authors, thinkers, and creators. Students get opportunities to write, create, mess-up, try again, work together, and move around. The end result will be a shared experience that you could never plan totally and will produce work you could have never expected!
