Check out some of the comments below, from teachers and students to see whether you might be interested in a workshop in your classroom. . . .
I guarantee your students will have the tools to structure their own stories/novels by the end of the workshop!
including: character development / setting / plot
and other tips and tricks I have learnt over the past 15 years as a writer/author/bookseller and reviewer.
Students - Yr 7 and 8's
Charlotte - I enjoyed Adele's humour because I think our classroom likes learning to be fun.
Shaun - Adele was really passionate about her books and wanted to try and make us really like reading.
Laila - I liked that Adele gave everyone a chance to talk and share.
Elliot - I enjoyed when Adele was talking about her books. . .
Laura - I usually get stuck on what to write so Adele's technique will be very helpful during writing time.
- Adele's presentation included lots of information/teaching points for teachers to use and develop
- Many students have requested to write their own novel as a result of Adele's visit. It was very motivating.
- Both students and teachers enjoyed the focus on character development . . .
