Lesson Plan 10: Setting

November is National Novel Writing Month! If your class is involved, or just doing a creative writing unit, you'll need to talk about setting. Authors start by writing about their main character's town, adding as much detail as possible. They discuss the word setting, identifying the fact that there is more than one in their novels. Using a worksheet, writers take a break from writing as they draw various settings from their stories. The worksheet isn't included, but it is easily found online. The detailed and humorous drawing prompts will really get kids' creativity flowing!
