Category Description for Writing Fiction [In High School]:

Having effectively taught reluctant writers to write, eager writers to write, and the skills and techniques for non-fiction writing, Sharon Watson uses her engaging style and comprehensive approach to help students master fictional writing. All aspects are explored through 13 chapters (a one-year course spanning 122 lessons) - some facts about fiction, point of view, fairy tales, characters and characterization, conflict, dialogue, description, words, theme, plot, scenes, beginnings and endings, and the final hurdle - getting published. Throughout the text written directly to the high school student, Ms. Watson teaches through example. Students explore fiction from many genres and many styles to see and understand the techniques that can enhance their own writing. This course can be used for individual students, co-ops, or classrooms. Some of the material covered, and a number of the assignments, are designed for group settings to encourage discussion and open reading/critiquing. Parents or tutors may need to be involved in this aspect if students will not have the option for group participation. This course has two tracks: the first is for writers of all skill levels, and the second is an optional track for writers who already have a manuscript. Both tracks are self-directed and self-explanatory. The available teacher's guide includes a discussion guide and answer key and a bibliography of all of the examples used in the student text (which is quite extensive). Compelling fictional writing has never been so attainable! - Zach

We have used the middle school Jump In writing program by this author and enjoyed it. My high school student wants to do creative writing this school year.

Best writing curriculum out there! Very easy to use even for self-study by student, without group support. It's inexpensive, yet it's comprehensive, complete, well-written, captivating to its readers.

We loved 'Jump In' and 'The Power in Your Hands' by this same author, so I know this will be excellent as well.

My son, who is now in 9th grade really enjoys writing, but more specifically, writing fiction. He had a complaint that all teach-you-how-to-write-books were never really about writing fiction. So, when I saw this, we both agreed this would be wonderful for English! Course, I need the teacher's guide.
