Brookes Publishing has created a lovely two-page handout entitled, 6 Ways to Explore Story Elements With Your Students. It's a great visual to share with teachers, librarians, and school administrators especially if you are requesting funds to purchase my new book - Story Frames for Teaching Literacy. The publisher and I have worked hard to keep this resource affordable by creating a robust downloads section with power points, activity sheets, and book synopses. It is due for publication in early April of 2021.
To learn more about how film structure inspired me to write this book, check out my previous blog post Screenwriting and Novel Plotting: The Inspiration Behind Story Frames.
Each section of Story Frames starts with the evidence base behind the strategies for that chapter and there are links to the Common Core State Standards throughout. There is also a lengthy reference section at the end. Go to the Brookes Website to get the downloadable version of this handout and don't forget to sign up for my NEWSLETTER to receive a free Story Template if you have not already done so.
