Summer Career Connections Session 5, Day 2, Creative Writing: Short Stories
Day 2: We had a packed day two in Creative Writing: Short Stories! After a brief warm-up activity to help students wake up, we picked up where we left off with personification and characterizing inanimate objects. Students shared the stories that they invented for the stairs, lamp posts, trees, and benches, all of which were very entertaining! From there, we transitioned into a lesson on dialogue, and students created conversations between their inanimate objects. We also created some additional dialogue scenes and performed them for the class to get up, moving, and laughing.
- Which inanimate objects did you create a dialogue between? What happened in the scene?
- What did you write about for your performed dialogue scenes? Which was your favorite and why?
- What character did you create? What are some interesting facts/features about your character?
