Writing your own book
Write Your Own Book is much more inspiring to both avid and hesitant authors than book tutorials for creatively written work. As with most other DK textbooks, this one has full-colour pictures and illustrations and should be of interest to third to 6th grade pupils. While Write Your Own Book will help kids write their own stories, that only happens on page 70 of this 96-page book.
On the first 70 pages, prompt are written to investigate various facets of the story. Each double page has a different topic - if you don't inspire your kid, try a different one. Whilst most typing skills are inventive, they are instructed to write directions for a charm. Notice that some of the parents want to jump over this, but consider having them write assignments for the kitchen or for an arts or construction scheme.
Sometimes they are asked to paint things like a wanted poster, maps of an imagery country or the opening scene of a comic-style film. The pupils write, paint and paint directly in their book. Often the pupils write a brief section rather than a full history. Sometimes they write a description or a possible narrative as an answer to the requests to write.
There are some cases in this first section where the pupils should write a full storyline with a beginning, a center and an end, but these should be short - there is only one formated page on which they should write for each of these pages. When such an authority specifically recounts its history, pupils write it in fifty words or less.
There may not be enough room for a series of typing tutorials on the format pages, and then you may need to choose whether to host some of your own format pages or reuse them in a notepad. Some progress has been made - the first unit focuses on story plotters, and dialog writer starts on page 48.
For this reason, the student should have the opportunity to have read a lexicon and a thesis while he or she is typing. The first part of the book is completed on pages 66 to 69. On pages 66 and 67 you will find some check lists for self-editing the use of terminology, orthography and punctuation, and on pages 68 and 69 a general vocabulary.
On page 70 the pupils begin to write their own longer history. That section of the book is very selective. The book guides the pupils through a logic for the structure of their history. Then, they plot their history, which describes the opening, the settings, the plot, the culmination, the conflict and the solution. Once they have worked out the framework for the history, they are prepared to design its opening.
They' re also going to design the culmination and the end before they start the whole thing. In all these stages, the pupils will draw on the abilities they have learnt or practised in the first part of the book. Once the student starts writing their full history, they should probably work on pre-design elsewhere, maybe even on the computer.
The fifteen pages on the back of the book are designed for the pupil to write his history, but these pages should probably be reserved for creating the definitive design of the finished history. This book has a hardcover with a twisted weave. That makes the book robust enough to withstand the rigors of use, and it also allows it to lay completely level so that pupils can write in it.
The Write Your Own Book feels completely different from most resource designs developed for use in education. I assume, however, that it will be very useful for hesitant authors. Whilst I have written that the proposed public is classes three to six, it is easy to use Write Your Own Book with high school juniors who need the child-friendly size of this book to encourage them to write creatively.
