    Ages 8-12 This course will take students through the process of writing realistic fiction stories about their life experiences. In this class, students will use their personal life experiences as a springboard for writing realistic fiction stories. They will read some sample stories together to gain ideas for improving their writing. Students will learn to create hooks and exciting beginnings, craft their plots using a story arc to build suspense, and write insightful endings. Their stories will focus on a small moment in time which will be expressed with lots of sensory details. In addition, students will learn how to add dialogue and special writing techniques to their stories to make them more engaging to their audience. We will be writing a story together as a class to model each step of the writing process. Then students will use what they learned in class to create their own stories. Teacher Heidi Lee is an experienced elementary school teacher and a certified reading specialist. She spent many years teaching at an international school in South Korea, but now calls Chapel Hill home.
