Children Are Natural StoryTellers. To get your students excited about writing...begin with a great story! These guided experiences build confidence and help individuals find their true voice as they toggle between the written and spoken word. They work cooperatively, listening to and interpreting a speaker's messages (both verbal and nonverbal), assisting one another by asking questions to clarify the speaker's purpose or perspective. Students speak, critique, compete, and learn to tell a great tale through experiences that strengthen writing skills while promoting concentration, cooperation, and communication.
