Getting Ready to Write

Students watch an online slideshow that shows Cornelia Funke's transition from an illustrator to a writer. They discuss her writing process from the way she gathers ideas to how and where she writes. Next, they work in groups to choose a story idea, organize their thoughts, set the tone and mood, and finally, write the beginning to a story. They reflect on the process of writing a book.
