I decided to scrap all framework planning and focus on what my class needed. I really feel this has been a huge success. So far completed blocks on recounts, persuasive writing and currently looking at journalistic writing in more detail. Next i'd like to more onto narrative writing. Starting with general story structure moving onto story openers, setting/character description, story endings then focusing on stories with flashbacks then if we have time stories with issues and dilemas. I was wondering what the best way was to teach story structure. Any tried and tested methods that worked. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you in advance for taking time to read and reply.
