Interactive story writing is one of the
most exciting and successful ways to
teach students the importance of adding
detail to their writing. This segment will
surely motivate your students to go
back to the classroom and write, write,
"Your program was very well suited for a variety of grade levels and the students loved it.
My favorite part, as well as the students', was the story creating activity. Any time the
students can directly interact with the author, they all become fully engaged. What a
wonderful way to have the students’ full attention. I also enjoyed the music throughout the
program. I think the students took away so much that will help them in their future careers
as student writers."
