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.
Ben Slavic and Tina Hargaden are on a mission - to make your life in the classroom as simple and joyful as we possibly can.
