Class Experience

In addition to learning about the 4 traditional elements of a story (Theme, Plot, Conflict, and Character),  the elements of a fairy tale, and character types, students will learn about and follow a three character fairytale story map.  
Title of Story
Chapter 1- Introduce setting, characters, and regular life.  Then something HAPPENS!  This happening changes everything!
Chapter 2- The main character responds  to happening. Adventure begins.
Chapter 3- The main character meets the Buddy. Buddy joins adventure.
Chapter 4- The main character and the Buddy meet the Villain and lose!  
Chapter 5- The main character/Buddy meet Villain again and win!
Chapter 6- The villain is no longer a threat.  Things return to normal … only better. The main character and Buddy learned important lessons. Here is where themes comes in.
