What I can do for you
The Ultimate Story Question (Suitable for years 2 – 6)
In this workshop, I demonstrate the power of the question ‘So what?’ for building rich, original story ideas. By beginning with a single idea and exploring the question ‘So what?’, reluctant writers will find it easier to produce ideas, while the approach also encourages coherence for students whose ideas tend to the zany or meandering.
As a class, we will create a setting, a hero and the key points of a plot, which I will write up live on screen. After each element has been completed as a group, students will try the exercises themselves verbally in pairs, or solo on paper, depending on the classroom platform used.
