THE FIVE ELEMENTS OF STORY

POWERFUL STORIES

An introduction to the excellent writing program for middle school and high school students by Daniel Schwabauer of Clear Water Press, this presentation is a brief, simplified version for the elementary student. We will discuss his “Five Elements of Story” with an interactive bean-bag activity showing examples from the students’ favorite stories, plus one of the Bandana Acres books. The five elements are: someone to care about, something to want, something to dread, the struggle, and something to learn. Contact me for a school visit in the great KC area!
