Natural Approach to Stories

Deep Dive into the One Word Image and Story Creation Process

In this book, Ben Slavic shares a system for creating class characters from One Word Images, and for guiding students to create their own characters, also known as Invisibles, and for crafting stories with them. He shares a system of student jobs that support the process and help teachers to craft short, compelling stories that easily wrap up within one class period. This book provides an in-depth treatment of creating class stories as outlined in our later book, A Natural Approach to the Year. It is highly recommended reading for any teacher looking to lift the level of story creation in their classroom.
