The Cohen Curricula AoS Discovery: Reading and Writing Short Stories Study Guide is a detailed resource that will develop student skills in negotiating and perfecting the creative writing process. The resource begins with a glossary exercise to familiarise students with the metalanguage of narrative writing. A range of detailed workshops on plot, characters, setting, themes and point of view provide a structured process teaching students how to analyse short stories ( four 'Discovery' focused suggestions are presented as links that you can download free from the Internet or you can use the exemplars provided in the package). Once students can recognise how structure and language works they can then apply these skills to their own writing. Structured questions and discussion prompts are provided for both. A workshop on genre and a checklist of techniques will assist students when annotating and editing their own work, ensuring they have developed sophistication in their writing. A range of strategies for writing original narratives are provided. A series of sample stimulus, both visual and written are provided, six visual and written and eight written. Two A range student exemplars have been provided allowing students to see length, style and language use that contributed to Band 6 results. A workshop on writing a satirical narrative is also included and a final workshop that links student writing back to 'Discovery'. This guide would suit students who are looking to build their skills continually from now until the HSC and for teachers who are looking for an explicit teaching guide on creative writing. You can also access our free narrative stimulus statements (24) and a further narrative checklist resource on our blog under the AoS Worksheets tab. This workshop is focused on Discovery but the processes can be used from 7-12. This resource is priced to ensure students can access a resource that will not fail to present them with a very thorough process, with examples and exemplars, that they can use to develop their writing skills.
